The primary goal of the finance program is to prepare undergraduate students for professional positions in corporate finance and financial planning.
The Department of Accounting and Finance offers a Bachelor of Science in Finance with two areas of emphasis. We offer a track in corporate finance for those students interested in careers in financial analysis, credit analysis, security analysis and banking, and who also might be interested in obtaining the chartered financial analyst (CFA) designation. We also offer a track in financial planning for those students interested in careers as financial advisors, investment advisors, insurance advisors, and estate planning advisors, and who also might be interested in obtaining the certified financial planner (CFP) designation.
The finance program at St. John Fisher College offers applied, student-centered instruction in corporate finance and financial planning. The program is challenging, supportive, and enriching, and it promotes the Fisher spirit by fostering community and social responsibility.
