B.S. Degree in Business
Students who choose a major in Business can concentrate in one of the three areas: Finance, Management, or Sales and Marketing.
Program in Finance
Finance is concerned with the methods used to generate monetary resources to purchase sufficient physical capital and inventory that can sustain company sales. Often referred to as "The Heart of Business," students of Finance learn the mechanics of cash flow management and capital budgeting. Xavier's program in Finance is aimed at preparing students to take the Certified Financial Analyst Examination and/or to qualify for admissions to the master of Finance program at Tulane University.
The Finance program has been recently revamped to prepare students for the Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) exams. The CFA designation is the most respected and valued credential in the global finance community.
Program in Management
Because managers are the people who decide how to use many of a society's most valuable resources – its skilled employees, raw materials, computers and information systems, and financial assets – they directly impact the well-being of people, organizations, and nations. Our management majors are well-prepared for Careers in a wide variety of business organizations, both domestic and international.
Program in Sales and Marketing
The Sales and Marketing Concentration offers business majors an opportunity to receive education that will prepare you for a career in Sales, Customer Relationship Management or Marketing.
