The Department of Finance objective is to prepare students for careers in corporate finance, financial services, and other industries. We consider, as an integral part of our mission, the production of scholarly research and involvement of its faculty in providing service to the College of Business, FAU, and the community of South Florida.

Guiding Principles:

Develop critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and communication skills that provide the foundation for life-long learning in finance.

The Department of Finance can boast of the accomplishments of the faculty and students. The faculty has published research in the leading academic and practitioner journals such as the Journal of Financial Economics, the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, the Journal of Banking and Finance, Financial Management, the Journal of Financial Research, and the Financial Review. The faculty also excels in teaching at the undergraduate, Masters' and Ph.D. levels, winning several teaching awards and drawing from business experience.

Our faculty achievement influences our students' achievements. After graduation, students enter the workforce prepared and advance rapidly. Finance students are currently working for Fortune 500 companies in the south Florida area as well as in other parts of the country and overseas.
