The Finance major provides an excellent mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. Students are exposed to a variety of teaching methods, ranging from lectures and group discussions to problem-solving case analysis and independent studies. The program provides a foundation in the primary financial areas of corporate finance, investments and financial institutions.
Finance RIFP is designed to prepare students to enter the fields of insurance and personal financial planning. Students who choose to specialize in this area learn about treatment methods for risk, and the mechanism of insurance as a means of handling major risks in a business. Students are also introduced to the primary components of financial planning.
Note: UW-La Crosse is one of the few schools in the nation to offer a major in Finance with a Risk, Insurance and Financial Planning concentration.
