Managing money is the focus of earning a degree in finance at Culver-Stockton College. Coursework not only hones your understanding of business skills and strategies, but also examines the impact of economic forces at both the micro and macro levels. Once that foundation is built, the courses build an in-depth comprehension of financial institutions and how they work, monetary policy, financial management, cost management, risk management, investments and portfolio management, and international corporate finance.
