Finance and Strategic Management
What gets you the job?
This concentration will give you a strong understanding of finance, as well as an understanding of the limitations of the financial models. This knowledge can be applied to any job where the ability to raise, allocate and manage finances is central. By adding the strategic perspective on this, you get an advantage when making decisions, as you have a broader perspective that takes both financial and non-financial factors as well as the strategic implications into consideration.
Many graduates find employment in financial institutions. This could be as an analyst or advisor at a brokerage or investment firm, evaluating market developments or making recommendations on whether to buy or sell a particular investment or security.
Some will also find job opportunities in consulting. As a consultant you can help companies tackle a great variety of problems. You could for instance help a company by making an analysis for market entry, or understand the financial implications of different strategic approaches to company expansion or mergers.
The financial and strategic skills acquired can also lead to jobs in a broad range of other areas. For instance in international organizations like IMF, EU or in the public sector.
