About Finance

Rutgers Business School-Newark offers two tracks students can complete as a finance major: Financial Planning and Financial Management. Financial Planning leads to the Certified Financial Planning designation. The Financial Management track is our traditional Finance major. The requirements for each track are different although there is some overlap. Please note that not every course offered by the Finance and Economics Department will satisfy the requirements for both tracks. Overall, the finance sector is comprised of establishments primarily engaged in financial transactions, which involve the creation, liquidation, or change in ownership of financial assets. Almost every firm, government agency, and other type of organization employs one or more financial managers. Working in offices often close to top managers and with departments that develop the financial data those managers need, financial managers typically have direct access to state-of-the-art computer systems and information services. Our finance graduates secure careers ranging from managing finances for startups to working in the biggest, most prestigious financial firms on Wall Street. Students must be Finance and/or Accounting majors to complete the program.
