About the Banking Concentration

This degree program provides a solid financial background along with entrepreneurial skills to service this growing market. The need for specialized education arises from the increased competitiveness within the financial services industry. Many banks make tremendous efforts to serve not only the budding entrepreneur, but also those entrepreneurs successful in growing to new heights in sales and market expansion. Growing entrepreneurial businesses have significant funding needs. As is often the case with a growing business, there are insufficient internally generated cash flows to finance expansion. Firms can choose to go public, seek private equity, or turn to their banker to supply the funds needed to stoke future growth. Banks need skilled employees with the ability to recognize those entrepreneurial opportunities, who possess the depth of finance knowledge to evaluate the deal’s potential, and who have the ability to close the sale. The program offers a wide variety of courses in finance, entrepreneurship, and sales management to ensure that graduates possess the skills necessary to be successful in this growing industry.
