Finance majors explore in great depth the current financial practices of both organizations and individuals, and learn to handle these practices in an ever-changing marketplace. The breadth of knowledge instilled in SJU’s finance majors is vast, ensuring the understanding of the financial function in business and the management of assets and liabilities.
Of the many resources available to finance majors at Saint Joseph’s, perhaps the most notable is the Wall Street Trading Room, located in Mandeville Hall. The room provides access to electronic sources of financial and investment data, analytical tools and trading simulations. Thus, classes are able to work more effectively, with hands-on learning and enhancements to curriculum. The trading simulations provide for real-life experiences, and the continuous access to financial data/software creates an integrated learning environment.
