B.S. in Finance

Otterbein University’s Finance degree provides students with a solid background in both corporate finance and investments.

Corporate finance is the study of how a company makes financial and investment decisions with a focus on how shareholder values are maximized both short-term and long-term. Investments focus on mutual funds, derivatives, securities, the functioning of securities markets and portfolio selection. Students are required to take a case course in finance which enables them to apply these concepts to real-world business situations. In addition, students will complete a core of foundation courses in accounting, economics, management and marketing. A variety of elective courses are available that allow students to tailor their degree to their particular area of interest.

The Otterbein Finance degree is designed to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to enter occupations as financial analysts, loan officers, securities analysts, credit managers, stock brokers, bank examiners and personal financial advisors.
