The Department of Finance and Business Law at UW-Whitewater provides students with a strong foundation in the primary financial areas of corporate finance, investments, money and capital markets. The program allows students flexibility to explore these areas in greater detail or to branch out in other financial areas such as financial planning, insurance, or real estate. The department offers finance major with three emphases. The Finance and Business Law Department is unique in our ability to offer each of these four options as an Honors degree. We also offer a Bloomberg Certification course, an Applied Investments course, the option to complete the MBA-Finance Emphasis online and the opportunity to take several undergraduate (BBA) courses online. One fourth of the CPA exam is prepped by students taking FNBSLW 342/542.
