    Course Summary

    The study of Finance is mostly about valuing real investments, and evaluating the profit potential and risks associated with capital projects and other investments. It requires a familiarity with common financial instruments, such as futures, options, bonds and stocks. You’ll also learn about sources of capital and the factors that large firms and individual investors use to guide financial decisions. It makes excellent preparation for professional qualifications such as Chartered Financial Analyst and Chartered Financial Planner. 

    The University of Northern British Columbia’s Honours BComm degree has several options. Besides the major in Finance outlined below, you can major in Accounting, General Business, Human Resources Management, International Business or Marketing. The first year classes for all BComm majors are largely identical, so you can often switch between majors any time before you begin your second year. 

    General Business is also available as a Minor, and can be combined with many other specialities.
