Yes, PC classes cover the traditional areas of finance — corporate financial management, investment analysis, and financial institutions and markets. But the program — built on a firm liberal arts foundation and reinforced by a values-based philosophy — is anything but traditional. Our students learn how to tackle complex financial challenges supported by technology with high professional and ethical standards and a broad-based perspective. They also gain the practical, out-of-classroom experience that gives them a clear competitive advantage with employers.
