Finance, BSBA


Finance is the rare major that sets you apart from similar degrees while also providing employment opportunities across a wide spectrum of fields. Two major career fields are Financial Services and Corporate Finance.

Not only does a finance degree from USF confirm you as employable in roles across the business sector, but it also opens doors to industries that traditionally have nothing to do with finance. Consider this: every type of business, from your local bookstore to Amazon itself, needs to have at least one employee who understands how money works and moves in an economy. With a finance degree from USF, that one employee might well be you.
