Finance Education Programs - Finance Degrees & Training Finance Education

Finance Education Finance is an industry segment that covers any of the service industries whose primary concern is managing money. This may take the form of banking services, insurance, mortgages, or accountancy services. Money may be borrowed, lent, invested, bought, sold, recovered, analyzed, taxed, or advised upon.

Each and every aspect of finance has its own dedicated set of agents, advisors, and employees. Finance education is designed to give you the grounding you need in order to pursue a career within the finance industry.

Investment banking, money management, commercial banking, insurance, pensions, and corporate finance are all areas where you may find that finance degrees are highly valued. You may want to become a financial analyst, financial manager, bank manager, pensions advisor, or financial examiner. You could even become a personal financial advisor, if you are attracted to helping individuals maximize their savings and investments and minimize their exposure to tax.

Some roles require specific training and licensure in order to practice or advise people. If you have a specific career in mind, you need to check exactly what the requirements are and whether your finance education program is suitable for your chosen career.

General finance degrees may cover subjects such as principles of accounting, capital planning, funds acquisition, asset management, budgeting, financial analysis, financial instruments, investments, tax law, and portfolio management.

Finance Education: Perspective Careers

The outlook for careers that require finance education is looking good. According to the occupational outlook handbook (Bureau of Labor), careers in finance and insurance are expected to grow by 10.2% by 2012.

The baby boomers will be having a marked effect on the finance industry as they reach retirement age and look to be financially stable and secure; they will be interested in commodity contracts, securities and other financial investments. This should increase the numbers of people employed in these areas.
