A bachelor's degree in finance prepares graduates with the knowledge and decision-making skills they need to acquire, invest and manage money. We also offer a finance minor, which compliments majors such as accounting and management.

Finance majors at Minot State University begin with the basics of accounting, business, marketing and management and then receive in-depth training in corporate, personal and entrepreneurial finance. Graduates leave with a thorough understanding of the financial process and are prepared to add value to any organization.

What can you do with a degree in finance?
