Managerial Finance Major (BBA)
The Managerial Finance Concentration should be selected by finance majors interested in obtaining the Certified Financial Manager (CFM) designation. This certification is jointly sponsored by the Financial Management Association and the Institute of Management Accountants.
Eastern’s Managerial Finance program is one of the few programs nationwide aimed at preparing students for the CFM examination. It combines four advanced courses in managerial accounting with four advanced courses in managerial finance to prepare students for positions in managing financial assets and liabilities.
Career Possibilities in Managerial Finance
Demand for business graduates with the CFM certification is strong and growing both nationwide and in the Bluegrass region. Entry level positions are typically in cash, financial securities, and business debt management. Career paths lead to upper level management.
