Finance

Finance is at the core of every organization - every business, nonprofit, 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 Bachelor's degree is all about. There is always a need for people with a solid knowledge of finance, money management and a strong moral compass.

As a Finance major in Indiana Wesleyan University's school of business, you will learn about the time value of money, how taxes and investments affect cash flow, financial ratios, micro economics and macro economics. Your undergraduate coursework will include:

  • Economics
  • Statistics
  • Accounting
  • International Business

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.
