Department of Finance

The Department of Finance at Georgia Southern University provides students with the foundation for careers in finance. Our department offers a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree in finance. We invite you to meet the faculty, view the curriculum and learn of the many interesting activities in which both our students and faculty are engaged.

Beyond the classroom, we offer a host of learning opportunities to enhance a student’s academic experience. These include Eagles on Wall Street, two student-run organizations (the Finance Association and the Southern Investment Association), certifications in both Bloomberg and Eikon, as well as the department’s membership in the CFA Institute’s University Affiliation program. Our graduates are employed in such diverse fields as banking, insurance, real estate, security analysis and financial planning.

AACSB Accreditation

The Parker College of Business is accredited by the
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), and has been since 1983. This is a distinction that is held by less than 5% of the world’s business schools. Maintaining accreditation requires an institution to maintain qualified faculty and an established program of continual improvement. This requires a great deal of work by the faculty and administration, but it sets our programs apart as some of the top programs in the world.
