The primary goal of the Finance Program is to extend the understanding of financial theory and practice among our students, the University, and the broader community.
How do we do this?
John Carroll is dedicated to developing socially responsible leaders. With a foundation in over 450 years of Jesuit Catholic teaching, our faculty focus on providing students with the tools needed to make ethical decisions in business and in the larger community. We believe in educating you as a whole person: mind, body, and spirit, and ensuring that all aspects of your education help you to become a well-rounded, well-educated person.
What does this mean for you?
Finance applies economics, accounting, and mathematics to financial decision-making. Whether you study corporate finance, international finance, investment, or financial institutions, you will gain the knowledge and understanding of financial theory and practice. In addition to your business classes, you’ll gain a firm background in the liberal arts, sciences, and communications.
We’ll teach you how to take the skills you’ll learn in the classroom and apply them to both your career and your life. You’ll learn both in and out of the classroom, being challenged to see how your gifts and talents can make a difference in our world.
You’ll learn from professionals that are leaders in their fields, who will advise and mentor you throughout your four years at Carroll.
Where do alumni go after graduation?
Students in the University’s finance program are actively sought by corporate recruiters, who know the students have been well prepared for the world of contemporary finance. Many finance students become financial analysts and managers. Others enter the consulting or legal professions or develop careers in the various occupations related to investment activity or financial institutions. Many John Carroll University graduates in finance have become high-ranking financial officers of prominent and successful companies or have achieved important positions in banks and governmental agencies.
