The Hartwick finance minor provides a foundation for students interested in money, capital, and risk management.
Where a finance background can take you.
Careers in finance include corporate finance officer (CFO), stock trader, portfolio manager, financial analyst, banker, insurance broker and personal financial advisor. The chartered financial analyst (CFA) designation requires a background in accounting, business, and economics consistent with our finance minor requirements.
A closer look.
Finance minors are introduced to classical economic theory while learning application skills and techniques related to analysis and planning, valuation, working capital management, strategic long-term investment and financing decisions, international financial management, and mergers and acquisitions.
Beyond the basic.
Like all Hartwick students, finance minors learn by doing. They study in small classes with expert faculty. They travel the world. They get ready for meaningful careers and interesting lives. They thrive.
Finance minors are encouraged to participate in internships while at Hartwick. Past internships include:
- Financial Analyst, Deutsche Bank, Bangkok, Thailand
- Global Brokering, ICAP North America, New York, NY
- Bank of New York, Mellon, Pittsburg, PA
- Venture Capital, Private Equity Firm, San Francisco, CA
