Finance at King’s
Through the Finance degree at The King’s College in New York City, students develop competence in mathematics, analytical techniques, portfolio theory, and financial modeling, preparing them to lead within businesses across the nation and world. Students in the Finance major begin with the Core Curriculum, where they hone exceptional writing and speaking while studying economic and political theory. We then approach finance from a Christian desire to serve society, combining ethics and financial flourishing for true Christian stewardship.
The Finance curriculum fosters expertise in portfolio management, corporate finance, securities analysis, and international finance, while electives with Wall Street financiers support the pursuit of successful, focused careers.View Courses
