SUMMARY

Going to school for Finance is not only a valuable choice, but generally an essential first step for pupils coveting to enter a career as an investment banking analyst, a wealth management advisor, or a corporate finance analyst. Interestingly, finance is a surprisingly popular degree choice, ranking as the 12th most popular degree. Last year, there were 45,223 finance diplomas received. In-state tuition for finance at private institutions is, on average, 3.7 times more expensive than their public equivalents.

There are 701 universities that offer finance. 701 universities is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other finance undergrads, consider looking at universities in Texas which have the most undergrads admitted to finance annually. Zooming out, the top region to pursue finance is in the Southeast region with Florida International University, Florida State University, and University of Georgia best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the best conference to major in finance is the Big Ten Conference with University of Iowa, Ohio State University-Main Campus, and Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus representing the conference. From our list of the best colleges, our choice for the best college for finance is University of Pennsylvania.

The overall 'best' school does not have to be the 'best' school for you. There can be tons more perspectives to weigh when choosing school. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely impact your feelings on which college to attend. Here at authority.org, we have weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are intrigued by which finance college is home to the top campus, the winner is Georgetown University. If, for example, you are very interested in which university has the finest campus, then we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, student reviews, professor reviews, and more in order to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our choice for the college with the best student life for finance is Georgetown University. Are you curious why? Continue reading to learn more about our top choices. Some of our decisions will probably surprise you.

If price is a primary factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Boston College. Boston College appears to be the most expensive college for finance, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive colleges that could put the price tag at Boston College into perspective. You could also care to know that finance is the 115th most expensive degree in the US, with an average bill of $37,700. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for finance in the country is District of Columbia with tuition and fees at the main three institutions American University of $49,070, George Washington University at $54,453, and costs at Georgetown University of $54,453. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the country for finance is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Bentley University with a cost of $50,060, Boston College with a cost of $56,780, and Providence College with a cost of $51,490.

Our cheapest region for finance is the Southeast region which is represented by Southern University and A & M College with a cost of $4,972, Western Carolina University with a cost of $5,000, and College of Charleston with a cost of $70. On the bright side, the most affordable university for finance is CUNY Bernard M Baruch College. Our entire list of the most affordable schools can be found here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying about $9,800 for a degree in finance. That cost increases by a lot to an average of $21,600 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the school constituting the best value for finance: University of Pennsylvania. On this page you can see our comprehensive list about the universities we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this list is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for finance students can vary, but within two-years of finishing the degree graduates will typically earn in the neighborhood of $63,800. While there can be much variation in earnings potential; top earners can rake in up to $134,200. Right out of school, the minimum earning jobs within the finance field earn $30,000, which is an alright wage. The highest earning grads for finance graduated from Bentley University and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The overall diversity of finance is on the higher end, coming in the 54th percentile of majors nationally. The school with the highest composite diversity for finance is University of Pennsylvania and here you can find our general list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Finance major is only within the 12th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 51st percentile. White collegians compose the largest share, 61%, of those studying finance. Additionally, 71% of undergraduates seeking a finance major are men.

The median score for finance professors is 4 stars, a ranking which is exactly the median score for every major; which is a fine. If you are looking for the most popular finance professor in the nation, consider looking up Steven Hirohama from Cerritos College. This might come as a surprise, but the top rated instructors of finance according to students are found at Chapman University. If we consider data other than just rankings it becomes clear that the school with the overall best instructors for finance is University of Pennsylvania. One will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the best professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for finance is University of Pennsylvania. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a general list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you believe that looking at university from examples only derived from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental issues. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on individual colleges and explore a couple of our helpful background articles on important things to look for as your university search continues.
