The department offers two tracks of study for students majoring in finance
Financial Markets Major
The financial markets major is for students who desire a career in the financial services sector of the economy and is similar to finance programs offered by other universities. Lipscomb University graduates of recent years have done quite well in landing jobs with various types of financial institutions and organizations.
Financial Management Major
The financial management major has been created for students interested in working in corporate finance and is offered in conjunction with the Department of Accounting. Although this is a new concentration for Lipscomb, there are a number of Lipscomb graduates already working in corporate finance.
Minors are also offered in both economics and finance
Students completing either of the two finance tracks with a GPA greater than 3.0 will meet the education requirements of the MFP, Master Financial Professional program. Graduates will be able to apply for this designation upon graduation through the American Academy of Financial Management (AAFM). As an ACBSP accredited College of Business, Lipscomb University has been recognized by this organization.
