Finance is integral to business administration and management, and central to global economics. This concentration teaches you how businesses raise, spend, and invest capital, how firms allocate resources, and how financial markets function.

Learn about value creation

For corporations, finance is about finding the funding to turn dreams into reality. For investors, it’s about judging which dreams can produce a good return for your money. The continuing credit squeeze following the 2008 financial crisis has forced both corporations and investors to be ever more inventive to meet these goals. The Hult concentration in Finance produces practically minded graduates who understand finance from both sides of the fence: the companies trying to fund their projects and the investment professionals who assess these projects’ potential to create value.

Gain financial skills for the future

Finance is one of the most rapidly changing areas of international business, as leading thinkers and practitioners question old assumptions and come up with new solutions in the wake of the credit crunch. What makes a good investment portfolio in the second decade of the new millennium? And how can companies secure funding when the banking sector is in permanent shake-up mode? Hult’s leading finance academics are helping find the answers. Be here with them at the center of the biggest change to finance in decades.
