The Finance Major

At Marietta College

Our faculty — who are industry-tested and highly regarded in their fields of study — help students develop the technical skills and abilities needed to identify investors’ needs and to analyze investments and corporate finance. Our majors gain a broad understanding of every element of business, including economics, accounting, and statistical analysis.

Majors have access to Marietta College’s Student Investment Fund, which provides each student with real-world, hands-on experience in security analysis and portfolio construction through the management of an actual investment portfolio. Class participants are collectively in charge of the investment decisions and the overall portfolio composition of the fund. Security selection is based on the value investing philosophy.

Marietta’s Finance majors develop the quantitative skills required to understand the market and the ability to communicate effectively with clients. Our graduates are driven to succeed and possess the skillsets that employers and graduate programs seek out.
