The Finance program at Webster University is designed to provide a quantitative and comprehensive examination of the finance field. 


 Students of the  Finance program at Webster University will advance through corporate finance, investments, and markets and institutions. Additionally, students will experience significant exposure to supporting coursework in the closely related fields of accounting and economics. A capstone experience will tie together the major finance topics, with a significant focus on mergers and acquisitions, and will expose students to literature, and the analysis thereof, pertinent to the field.

After a comprehensive examination of the field, students may choose their electives to satisfy their specific career goals. Students desiring to take advanced certification, such as the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) or CFP (Certified Financial Planner), will want to take advanced courses in Derivatives, Financial Statement Analysis, Advanced Investments and Portfolio Management, while students interested in pursuing careers in other fields may want to take Entrepreneurial Finance, or similar advanced topics offered by the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology.
