Why Study Finance at Quinnipiac?
Learning finance at Quinnipiac is more than reading textbooks and listening to lectures. This is how we take learning to a higher, more exciting level.
- The Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center will make you feel as if you are working on Wall Street. Software installed in the 50 computer workstations of the 2,500-square-foot center allows you to access real-time financial data from markets all over the world, practice analytical finance methods, conduct trading simulations, analyze economic databases and develop financial models.
- You can learn a lot from a simulation, but you'll learn more while making decisions with real money. That's why we offer two courses specifically designed for students to manage a six-figure equity portfolio with real dollars. Students develop strategies, analyze stocks and decide which ones to buy.
- We don't believe a classroom in the only place students learn. The Economics and Finance Club and the Investment Club coordinate trips every semester to New York City's financial district. Professors join students to tour the Federal Reserve, New York Stock Exchange, New York Mercantile Exchange and Citigroup's capital markets equity trading floor.
- We offer the opportunity to combine your undergraduate education with the value of a master's degree. If you are a typical Quinnipiac student - ambitious with a huge appetite for education - you can begin earning a master of business administration degree by taking graduate courses during your senior year. After graduating with your bachelor's degree, you'll become a full-time student in the master of business administration program with the option to pursue the chartered financial analyst track.
