Bryant University. The Character of Success

Finance Department

Discover the art and science of managing money. 

Individuals and corporations all face the same issues of budgeting and responsible spending, although to different scales. The Department of Finance offers two concentrations, Finance and Financial Services, which prepare graduates to make decisions and add value as a manager of an enterprise, or as an individual managing his or her own resources or the resources of others. 

Since virtually all business decisions have a financial dimension, an understanding of financial implications is crucial for effective management. Courses integrate economics, accounting, computer software applications, legal studies, marketing, mathematics, and statistics into a financial problem-solving, decision analysis framework centered around value creation and serving the consumer’s financial needs.
