In order to further strengthen our finance curriculum, the Economics Department is currently offering the academic concentration in Value Investing. The Ben Graham Value Investing program is intended to prepare undergraduates for a wide range of careers in which they will be faced with the challenge of evaluating investment opportunities and making active decisions to direct capital to enhance value.

If students have any questions about this concentration — or about the application process — please contact Humberto Hernandez or Tony Winston.

If this concentration is successful, the Department hopes to expand its available concentrations to include: Corporate Strategy and Competition, Public Finance and Economic Policy, and eventually, Global Economics, and Data Analytics. The rate of expansion will depend on student interest, our ability to hire and retain faculty and graduate students in these areas, and on our success in obtaining funding for the associated co-curricular activities.

Concentrations are optional and will NOT be noted on a student’s transcript or other official documents. Students are encouraged to take a course of study that interests them and meets their career goals. For some students this will involve taking courses within a specific concentration while for others an array of courses across multiple fields is more appropriate.
