    Bachelor of Science in Finance

    The finance program emphasizes the role of financial institutions and develops knowledge of how assets and liabilities are managed. Students learn the strategies for financial planning in domestic and international markets. A degree in finance prepares students for careers as a credit manager, bank manager, portfolio manager, foreign currency specialist, commodity analyst, trust manager and investment advisor.

    The requirements for admission to this degree track are:

    • A minimum cumulative undergraduate grade point average (CGPA) of 2.5
    • A minimum CGPA of 2.5 in all Business courses


    Transfer Students:

    Transfer students must complete at least 12 credits at NJCU, in addition to above requirements prior to declaring a major.

    Courses taken at NJCU to satisfy Finance major requirements require a minimum grade C (2.0). Major classes in which a grade below a C is earned do not meet degree requirements. Students who are unable to meet these standards are advised to withdraw from the major.
