Program overview

The finance bachelor degree prepares students for management positions in financial, commercial, industrial, and governmental organizations. Students are taught the principles of financial decision making and build an understanding of the economic, legal, and financial environment in which they will operate. Career options exist in government, industry, service, and not-for-profit organizations.

Students become familiar with financial systems, which include the public, private and government spaces. They also study financial instruments related to countless assets and liabilities. Specifically, Finance majors study cash flow, asset and risk management, capital markets, portfolio theory, international finance and forecasting and budgeting. Students become expert at decision making – one of the main differences between Finance and Accounting.

As a Finance major, students go beyond making a budget; they learn how to analyze a budget to determine opportunities to save or identify the best investment option. Students explore different career options in the Finance program based on their interest in decision-making – they can choose to pursue studies that support a managerial position as a Financial Analyst or they may be interested in a path that leads them to a career in Financial Consulting.

Finance students develop their ability to manage corporate finances and enhance their leadership potential. At RIT Dubai students learn how to solve problems. In addition and more importantly, they learn how to prevent problems through in-depth analysis, contingency planning and effective decision making.
