Finance, Master in Business Administration
Driven by a challenging global economy and the need to identify new approaches to financial regulation, high quality financial professionals are in strong demand.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) forecasts employment for financial analysts will grow by 20 % through 2018 – surpassing the average rate for all occupations. The BLS also expects job growth for financial managers to rise by 8% during the same time period.
You can prepare for this thriving field through the Master of Business Administration Program’s Finance Concentration at St. John’s University. Offered by The Peter J. Tobin College of Business, the concentration prepares students for leadership positions in banks, securities and other financial services companies as well as with government and not-for-profit agencies.
