Concentration in Global Finance and Business Economics

Virtually every large company is now multinational, through exports, imports, foreign offices, employee composition, partnerships, owners, subsidiaries, funding sources, and/or investments. The global finance and business economics concentration is designed to prepare students for a productive and influential role in an increasingly integrated financial community. The first four of its five required courses specifically target the accounting, economics, and finance topics that define the study of global finance and economics. The fifth, a capstone course, emphasizes a wide range of cases and Excel skills to ensure that graduates can succeed in the marketplace.

Graduates of this concentration will be well-trained for positions in the global workforce such as financial analyst, account executive, sales and trading support, investment manager, and risk manager. They will benefit from Fordham’s presence in New York City and close connections with Manhattan-based corporations, many of which supply working executives as adjunct instructors and provide internships for Fordham students.

The global finance and business economics program may be completed by Gabelli School of Business Lincoln Center students as a primary concentration.
