Special Programs in the Department of Finance

Within the finance major, students can choose to pursue specialty programs and tracks to better prepare them for specific careers after graduation. Program summaries are below, but students seeking the quantitative track or careers in wealth management, corporate financial planning and analysis, or risk management should contact their advisor (preferably) or the finance chair for directives on the sequence of courses.

Offering these programs at the undergraduate level provides Providence College students with a clear competitive advantage, increasing their value to a wide range of employers, including those involved with securities analysis, investment banking, treasury management, asset-liability management, and corporate financial planning and analysis (FP&A).

Please note that students following any of the tracks below do not earn this credential on their Providence College transcript. The lists of courses are for advising purposes only for students interested in this career path.
