About the Finance Secondary Area of Concentration

Students are exposed to a variety of important topics such as financial statement analysis, corporate financial management, taxation, international business, and money and banking. Financial literacy is also stressed throughout the curriculum as students accumulate life-long skills for personal finance and planning.

Students develop a thorough understanding not only about business decision making, but also about how these decisions are connected to other aspects of our community such as economic, social and political relations. Our affiliation with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) University Program provides scholarships to motivated students to take the CFA certification exams while studying at New College. We participate regularly in the CFA Tampa Bay Ethics Competition to emphasize the critical role of business ethics in today’s complex world.
