Mathematics Department

There is a significant demand for college graduates with a combination of a finance background and strong quantitative skills. Some of the most successful managers of financial institutions such as mutual funds are among those who have double majors in business administration (finance) and mathematics. The combination of finance and mathematics makes it possible to get employment with insurance companies, mutual funds, stock brokerage houses, etc. and progress toward rewarding professions such as portfolio management, professional money management, securities analysis, actuarial science, and personal financial planning. The completion of this concentration in finance may also enhance the opportunity for mathematics majors to pursue an M.B.A. degree with a concentration in quantitative financial analysis.
