The Academy of Finance has seen tremendous growth over the last several years.

This Academy bridges the gap between the classroom and the workplace. The unique curriculum of core courses supplement student’s regular course load and offer an opportunity to work as an intern. Students have opportunities throughout the year to hear industry leaders and discuss career options, all while receiving specialized education.
