Our curriculum is rigorous as well as fun, allowing students to learn through problems, cases, spreadsheets and guest lectures. Beyond theory courses in finance, every student in the Finance stream has the opportunity to participate in training within our state-of-the-art Finance Trading Lab, equipped with professional software for trading and research that includes Thomson Eikon, Datastream, and Stockguide.

Upon graduation, our students may seek employment positions that range from a financial research analyst, to credit analyst at a bank, to financial planner, to consultancy work. Professional designations in the finance area include Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Chartered Investment Manager (CIM) and more. This is a very exciting time to be in the diverse field of finance.

St. Francis Xavier University, through the Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance program offered in the Gerald Schwartz School of Business is affiliated by the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) under the University Affiliation Program. The CFA Institute affiliates select universities around the world that have embedded into their degree programs a significant percentage (more than 70%) of the CFA® Program Candidate Body of Knowledge. This recognition and affiliation signals that the degree’s curriculum is closely tied to professional practice and is well suited to students preparing to sit for the CFA® examinations.

Some of our students instead choose to pursue research interests through post-graduate studies in national and international universities. The finance program provides interested students with the opportunity to engage in research projects (under the supervision of faculty) in areas such as corporate finance, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, market microstructure, derivatives, etc.
