Many faculty members in the Finance and Economics Department have real-world experience in business and finance. Whether it's working with venture capital or doing transactions in another country, they bring it all to the classroom.
You bet. Many finance graduates have continued their education by pursuing higher degrees in economics or finance, and a number have gone to law school. They also currently work at Deere and Company, Caterpillar, Northwest Bank and Trust, and area professional basketball, baseball and hockey franchises.
Students have the opportunity to compete for scholarships awarded by the university based on need or academic merit. Occasionally, there are scholarship opportunities specifically targeted to Economics and Finance majors. Contact the department chairperson, Prof. Linda Brown, PhD, for more information.
