Why Finance?

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of financial managers is projected to grow 15 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.1

Financial managers create financial reports, direct investment activities, and develop plans for the long-term financial goals of an organization. Specific functions, including cash management and risk management, are expected to be in high demand over the next decade.
