Every person, every business firm, every government agency or entity makes financial decisions. Size doesn’t matter. From operating on a shoestring to investing millions or even billions, finance is knit tightly into everyone’s life. The Bachelor of Science in Finance at the University of New Haven will give you an analytic appreciation of this financial decision-making process and the entire financial system in which we all play a part.
Get started on your career path from freshman year
You will start learning the fundamental skills that are crucial to your success from day one of your freshman year. Why? Because by junior year you’ll be studying subjects that need those skills. The program is rigorous and we instill a strong work ethic in our students. Our mission, after all, is to have you career-ready when you graduate. You can’t hide a lack of skills in the real world of finance!
Reap greater returns from small class sizes
At the University of New Haven, the student to faculty ratio is 15:1, with an average class size of 20 students. You’re never lost in a sea of faces here. The University is well known for the amount of attention our faculty members give individual students, and our finance program is no exception to that rule. The individual attention will aid your comprehension. And the smaller class sizes will encourage you to ask questions without being intimidated by a huge audience!
All classes are taught by faculty members — none are taught by graduate assistants.
Master the art of networking
Most jobs are landed through networking. We school you in this skill in a number of ways:
- By regularly drawing well-known industry leaders to campus for talks, after which you can meet them face-to-face
- Through our Professional Enrichment Program — a unique forum in which business leaders and successful alumni network with students on a continuing basis
- Through Speed Networking events — twice-a-year sessions of five-minute interviews with company representatives. You bring your resume and your best pitch and possibly walk out with a job offer.
- By membership in our clubs, where you can practice networking with your fellow students and establish lifelong, career-enhancing contacts
Manage a portfolio
Students can utilize the Samuel S. Bergami, Jr. Learning Center — a scaled down version of the New York Stock Exchange — where they manage both real and virtual portfolios. The best investment proposals are adopted and implemented by our Charger Advisory Board.
