People who work in finance affect every person—and every business—because “money makes the world go round.” You were probably told the reason you should go to college is to get a good job and what? That’s right, make good money.
From global corporations to small business enterprises, and big family fortunes to the small budgets of college students, having financial savvy is a must. With the knowledge and experience you’ll gain from Northwood University, you can increase the bottom line of others while making a profitable career for yourself. Seems like a fair tradeoff.
Here are some ways you can make a difference while making a nice future for yourself:
- Help your company raise capital to finance a growth plan, resulting in new jobs.
- Raise money to build roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals.
- Help customers finance businesses, homes, or a college education.
- Work closely with clients to develop their complete financial picture and advise them on how to best achieve their financial goals.
- Invest the funds of other people.
