We create value for our students, the business community, and the University through teaching, research, and service.

The department of finance at San Diego State University offers undergraduate degree programs in the areas of finance, financial services and real estate. Graduate students can earn MBAs with specialization in finance, as well as an MSBA in financial and tax planning. Career opportunities for finance graduates include positions with business and nonprofit organizations in financial management, protection of assets, client services, evaluation and selection of securities for investment portfolios and loan management, financial and estate planning along with wealth management, and real estate services, development and property management.

 

Career Opportunities

 

Finance graduates' career opportunities are quite diverse but include positions with business corporations and nonprofit organizations with responsibilities in financial management, administration of funds, protection of assets, tax administration, and investor relations; brokerages and investment companies with responsibilities in counseling clients, marketing financial services, evaluating and selection of securities for investment portfolios; and financial institutions with responsibilities in loan production, marketing financial services, and building client relations.

 

Financial services graduates pursue careers with financial services companies or as sole proprietors. Financial services professionals have a variety of responsibilities, including financial management, personal financial planning, and sales. This track is the most appropriate for those seeking the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation.

 

Real estate graduates pursue careers with mortgage, property management, real estate appraisal, brokerage, leasing, and real estate development companies. In addition, opportunities exist within financial services firms in real-estate-related activities. Responsibilities include decision making involving real estate and land market analysis.
