Finance is at the core of every organization-every business, non-profit, church, institution, government agency, and even every family must obtain and manage the money it needs to operate. That is the realm of finance, and what Indiana Wesleyan University's Finance major is all about. There is always a need for people with a solid knowledge of finance and a strong moral compass.
As a Finance major you will learn about cash flow, financial ratios, the time value of money and many other key financial measures. But you will learn more than just how to crunch numbers. The real work of finance is creative and involves finding ways to free up capital from existing sources and obtain capital from new sources so the organization can take full advantage of both current and future opportunities.
Every major organizational decision is evaluated by assessing the potential benefits and related costs, the inherent risks, and the impact on various stakeholder groups. Finance majors are equipped to play a major role in this assessment process.
