Department of Finance

Undergraduate

The Finance major focuses on learning how to make the best decisions about raising and using resources under risk. Finance addresses many questions regarding value: How much is a product worth? Is a stock worth investing in? Will expanding a business produce a sufficient return on investment? Deciding what to do with the opportunities and resources you have or can obtain today, balanced with your business needs for tomorrow---that's what Finance is all about.

The undergraduate program in finance prepares students to assume leadership positions at all levels of financial management for careers in business, industry, government, and public or private corporations.

The Lerner College provides an extensive computer lab, located in our building, and features IBM-compatible computers equipped with the latest software packages. Lerner College buildings have WI-FI wireless internet connectivity, as do many other UD locations.
