To have a thorough understanding of the financial implications of business decisions may be the key to success in business, which is why the financial decision making concentration at BVU focuses on creating a financial intuition that allows students to make better business and personal choices in the future. Students explore various analytical techniques to evaluate financial performance, firm value, and shareholder wealth, and learn how financial markets work.

Finance may be most appealing to those who have strong quantitative and analytical skills. The fast-paced, competitive industry attracts individuals not only with strong analytical skills, but also with outgoing personalities. Finance requires integrative learning, as financial managers’ decisions are highly influenced by economic and political conditions as well as laws and global competition in business. Courses in financial decision making prepare students to make solid financial decisions by carefully observing and analyzing complex business environments.
