GWSB is launching a first-of-its-kind bachelor of science in finance degree program beginning in the fall of 2013.
The program, which targets incoming freshmen and sophomores, will require students to double major in finance and an academic discipline outside of business. The requirement is designed to provide an interdisciplinary education so students are better equipped to work in the global marketplace with business know-how and the skills that come from a liberal arts education.
“Students will be career ready, but they will also have the training of deep critical thinking about other topics outside of business,” said Dean Doug Guthrie.
Similar degree programs that combine business with other academic disciplines are planned in marketing and international business. The School already offers bachelor’s degrees in business administration (BBA) and accountancy.
“Students graduating with this degree will have mastered practical reasoning as well as analytical and critical thinking skills that will allow them to address the issues of the modern world,” said GWSB Dean for Undergraduate Programs Isabelle Bajeux-Besnainou.
