Finance Department

Finance is the management of money and cash flow for business organizations, government and individuals. The study of finance involves examining the theory and techniques of managing money, including analysis and management of risk. Finance students learn to apply tools and concepts from mathematics, statistics, economics and accounting to financial decision-making. With this knowledge, finance graduates are in high demand by employers and command some of the highest salaries for college graduates. Depending upon their career goals and interests, finance majors may use the electives in the major to focus their program of study on financial management, personal financial planning, investments, banking, and/or risk management and insurance.

Our Mission:
The Finance Department serves the educational needs of the people of New Mexico by providing students and other constituents with knowledge and analytical skills in the areas of finance and business law, through programs of education, research and public service.
