Students who study finance at Illinois Wesleyan have a chance to manage $3 million
of the University’s endowment, present to industry professionals, and use the same
tools as professionals, such as a Bloomberg Terminal.
Real-world experience is emphasized as you learn about the management of money, investments,
financial institutions, and gain analytical preparation for careers in a wide variety
of profit-seeking business and not-for-profit agencies.
As a finance major, you will take coursework that will prepare you for entry-level
employment in the fields of finance, insurance, banking, investments and risk management.
In addition, as a finance major at a liberal arts institution you will hone your critical
thinking, writing and presentation skills and develop the broad outlook employers
and graduate schools demand and to prepare you for a life of continued learning.
