In addition to the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Finance, the Department of Accounting and Finance offers a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, MBA concentrations in Accounting and in Finance, a Certificate of Graduate Studies in Accounting, and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Accounting. The College in general and the Accounting and Finance Department in particularly are highly active in research and scholarship in line with the university’s evolution to a research institution. The RCB currently subscribes to several platforms and data bases, including WRDS (e.g., Compustat, CRSP, Audit Analytics, Execucomp), Capital IQ, and Bloomberg – to support its research active faculty. The College is committed to investing in research support tools for faculty, including new databases and travel support funding.
Within the department, the Finance Program looks to provide students with challenging career-oriented undergraduate and graduate preparation needed to acquire the knowledge and skills to be successful in finance careers and to pursue graduate studies. The Finance major requirements provide students with a broad understanding of financial theory and institutions. The Finance Program prepares students for a variety of career opportunities within financial institutions, governmental agencies and private industry. The Finance Program is supported by a Bloomberg trading lab which houses 12 Bloomberg terminals, the largest lab of its kind among New Jersey institutions of higher education. The Finance Program also aims to enhance the integration of computing technology and analytical skills through curriculum and pedagogical development, while continuing to build the finance, leadership, and communication skills that the profession demands. We continuously evaluate our curriculum and have recently introduced new course offerings in the area of data analytics. We have a strong program of professional development for our students, welcome teaching innovations, and have excellent ties to the regional professional community. The new faculty line will enable us to enhance existing course offerings in the undergraduate and MBA programs and support the newly launched Master of Science in Finance program.
