SNC’s BSBA in Finance and Economics is designed to prepare graduates for careers in funds/wealth/portfolio management, economic policy, or banking – whether domestically or involving multinational operations – as well as personal financial management.

Students have the flexibility to customize their curriculum to place additional emphasis on either discipline, or take a more balanced approach.  Coupled with electives from the entrepreneurship curriculum, this degree may also prepare graduates for careers involved with the financing of start-up businesses and/or secondary funding rounds to finance scalable growth needs.
