Drew University Announces New Major in Finance for Fall

Drew University will add a new finance major to its list of undergraduate offerings within the school’s department of Business, Finance, and Entrepreneurship. The program will launch in the fall of 2020. 

The new Bachelor of Science degree comes two years after Drew created its MS in Finance and just months following the introduction of new majors in accounting and marketing. 

Designed to appeal to students wanting to immerse themselves in financial markets and data analysis, the hands-on curriculum provides real-world exposure to domestic and global markets and prepares students for success in careers throughout the financial industry. 

“The current general business major helps students discover many different subfields that may stoke their passion,” said Professor and Executive Director of Business Programs Marc Tomljanovich. 

“This new major includes a greater quantitative emphasis, including data analytics and coding, which gives students specifically interested in finance the technical background and tools necessary for post-graduate employment or graduate programs.” 

The BS in Finance will take advantage of Drew’s proximity to New York City for experiential learning; professional opportunities in cities and towns surrounding campus; and a vast network of alums and East Coast professionals. The major requires at least two guaranteed immersive experiences. 

“The BS in Finance addresses a field that many current and prospective students express an interest in,” said Tomljanovich. “The program will be interdisciplinary, which is made easier with previously existing graduate degrees in finance and data analytics.”
