Finance graduates have diverse career choices, exemplified by the careers of our finance graduates in credit management, real estate, international banking, financial advising and consulting, bank examination, loan processing, and insurance underwriting. Career choices are also abundant in the not- for-profit sector, such as education, health care, and government service agencies. Finance careers reflect a love for solving puzzles and strong analytical skills.
The integrative nature of the Tabor School’s Finance Program helps ensure that graduates’ analytical skills will continue to be successfully applied as changes alter the business environment, including recent e-business innovations.
Our graduates work for such well-known companies as Caterpillar, State Farm, Prudential, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, Anderson Consulting, Mitsubishi, Country Companies, Archer Daniels Midland, UPS, and many others.
Recent Millikin finance graduates have careers with titles as diverse as credit manager, federal bank examiner, compliance officer in banking, customer service representative in banking, consultant for major consulting firms, broker in both stock and futures markets, traffic analyst, financial analyst, director of materials management, financial adviser, grain merchandiser, river terminal manager, small business owners, and many others. Across industries, numerous CEOs have finance as their background.
Many successful business graduates eventually pursue a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA). The finance major provides an ideal background for the MBA or for law school. Those with interests in law school should seriously consider electives in economics as well. The finance degree provides the flexibility needed for those who seek employment immediately after graduation, but also prepares those who wish to do graduate study.
