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.

  • Financial Analyst, Deutsche Bank, Bangkok, Thailand
  • Global Brokering, ICAP North America, New York, NY
  • Bank of New York, Mellon, Pittsburg, PA
