Banking Specialization

The banking specialization includes courses on investment banking and global banking, as well as risk management and related topics. The banking specialization may be suitable for students who see themselves entering careers in commercial or investment banking, or for students in other finance functions (e.g. corporate treasury) where banks are a primary provider of financial services, and other disciplines that support banking infrastructure (e.g., information systems).
