Finance is a competitive program in which you acquire the skills to manage money and practise making decisions that affect the future of corporations, communities and investors. As a Finance student, you will learn to:
Choosing one of five areas of finance — corporate finance, investments, financial institutions, derivatives, and international finance — you learn through lectures, case studies, simulation exercises and experiential learning. Our Co-op program places you in a financial sector that you want to practise in. Our two prestigious investment/portfolio management programs: Van Berkom Investment Management Program (VBIMP), and Kenneth Woods Portfolio Management Program (KWPMP) provide top students the chance to manage portfolios of more than $2 million. You can even develop an academic research project as part of our Honours in Finance program.
Whether you become a commercial banker for a multinational corporation or a consultant with a charitable focus, you’ll leave us motivated to build a sound financial future for any number of clients.
A Bachelor of Commerce degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background. All John Molson School of Business students follow a core business curriculum coupled with a John Molson School of Business major, which may be combined with a minor in another discipline or any combination of elective courses that interest them.
Students who qualify for the Honours in Finance program complete a 24-credit Finance major plus a six-credit research-based course.
A Minor in Finance (12 credits) is only available to John Molson School of Business students already in the program. A minor will fulfil the 12 elective credits in your BComm and complement your major field of study.
The Co-op program gives you hands-on experience in financial management, financial analysis, and portfolio investments. During paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks, you’ll acquire first-hand experience in corporate finance, investments, financial institutions, derivatives, and international finance.

At the John Molson School of Business, our economics major is applied. Because we look at the world though a business lens, you don’t just analyze data to discover how society, politics and the environment interacts with business, you also develop business strategies and organizational tactics to tackle economic problems big and small.
The future leaders who come to our school inspire people, embrace diversity, build new business models and create wealth in socially and ecologically sustainable ways. As a JMSB student, you achieve these goals by taking an integrated approach to management studies.
