Online BBA (OBBA) - Finance

When people hear Finance, they immediately think of money — reasonably so. At Florida Atlantic University, the Online BBA (OBBA) Major in Finance goes well beyond the aura of money, and teaches students the principles of finance and the importance of achieving the financial goals of an organization. The Major in Finance at Florida Atlantic University will prepare students to plan, manage, and analyze the financial and monetary operations and performance of organizational enterprises, banking institutions, and myriad other financial businesses. Unlike other Business Administration majors, the Major in Finance intentionally narrows the focus of its studies to prepare students for the short and long-term financial challenges that we face in this ever-changing financial landscape.

As a Finance major, students will:

  • Learn how to conduct financial modeling using spreadsheets and other applications 
  • Explore how multinational corporations make financial decisions
  • Examine commercial banks and other financial intermediaries and their relationship to money and capital markets 
  • Master principles of investment management
  • Apply analytical techniques to securities and portfolios in theory and in practice
