Finance & Business
Career Pathway

Persons trained in fields such as business management, international trade, and various financial services specialties (e.g., accounting, banking, and investing) will find that their skills are highly marketable. So in this pathway, students master basic business principles and procedures before proceeding to a career path specialization. Specializations can emphasize concepts such as accounting and finance (including computer applications, taxes, investments, and asset management) as well as pathways in international business and business management. Because almost every business and organization has a financial and management component, students who select this pathway will find that opportunities exist in many different career sectors in addition to those in business and finance.
