Finance

Overview

One of our school’s largest departments, Finance comprises a dynamic group of award-winning academics researching almost all areas of finance.

Home to the Douglas C. Mackay Chair in Finance, our Finance department offers you a risk laboratory featuring an array of easily accessible databases and other sophisticated and finance-focused research tools.

Our Finance team also offers the Mackay Seminars, a symposium that attracts prominent speakers and leaders from top universities in this field.

Your career prospects

Our Bachelor of Commerce with Major in Finance has been accepted into the CFA Institute University Recognition Program. This status is granted to institutions whose degree program(s) incorporate at least 70% of the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge (CBOK), which provide students with a solid grounding in the CBOK and positions them well to sit the CFA exams. Consequently, the school is entitled to award five CFA Program Awareness Scholarships to students each year.

Our Finance department advises DALIS, an innovative student-run hedge fund that develops and utilizes state-of-the-art investment and risk management techniques. 

Finally, non-credit workshops are conducted in areas such as Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and commercial banking to give you a competitive advantage when it comes to securing your co-ops, corporate residencies and full-time career placements.
