Corporate Finance

The MBA track in corporate finance provides training for students in financial and investment decisions at the firm level. These decisions include raising capital, capital budgeting, risk management, corporate governance and international financial management.

The corporate finance MBA culminates in a capstone course in the market for corporate control where students develop the ability to conduct analyses and valuation of transactions in this market.

Almost all businesses — public and private, for-profit and not-for-profit — rely on financial analysis and management to operate and succeed. These skills translate well across industries, geographies and business functions.

Graduates from this program are well suited for careers as analysts, financial managers, commercial and investment bankers, corporate controllers or within investor relations.
