Lacy School of Business


Major | Three Year

| Bachelor of Science

Finance students customize their studies to individual interests and gain the real-world experience needed to graduate confidently into the financial workplace. You can focus on either corporate finance, investments, or a combination of both. The Student Managed Investment Fund gives you the opportunity to manage millions of dollars of the University endowment, and there are plenty of opportunities to participate in industry competitions including the CFA Research Challenge. In addition, two required internships lead to exceptional placement rates in both investment and corporate finance areas.

Sample courses in this program include:

  • FN241, Personal Finance
  • FN340, Corporate Finance
  • FN347, Investments
  • FN352, Real Estate Principles
  • FN451, International Financial Management
  • FN470, Applied Portfolio Management

The Finance major can be completed in a total of three years. More information can be found here.

Graduate with four years of experience.

Through market-centric programming, deep business-to-education collaboration, and a dedicated career mentor, the Lacy School of Business (LSB) equips its students with the skills and knowledge to sharpen their competitive edge. 

LSB not only requires that every student have two internships; we also help you secure them. All of our students start a business in their second year, and experiential opportunities are incorporated into business courses each semester. 

The combination of a Butler education plus four years of real-world business experience and professional career mentoring is reflected in the success of our graduates, many of whom land positions right out of college that are intended for professionals with three or more years of work experience.
