Finance Certificate

The Finance Certificate focuses on developing comprehensive insight into financial markets and analyzing the rationale behind the financial actions taken within firms.

Courses examine the linkage between the financial structures present in the external environment and the financial arrangements internal to business. Students investigate a variety of approaches and tools useful in financial decision-making to evaluate risk and return in both the domestic and global contexts.

Major topics include:

  • Operating characteristics of financial intermediaries and financial markets
  • The relationship between elements of risk and diversification
  • Corporate approaches to global financial markets
  • The integration of financial decision making on corporate actions and success

Courses meet Saturdays, twice per month, for two months, with additional instruction and assignments conducted through on-line meetings. In-class sessions are held on the Redlands main campus or at a regional campus near you. Contact your local center for dates and times.
