The study of finance is one of the most interesting and dynamic areas of study available in most schools of business. It is our job as educators to provide our students with a foundation of knowledge that best prepares them for the ever changing world of business. Students who complete a finance degree program are some of the most prepared and sought after students by many different types of employers from all over the world. The dynamic nature of finance requires us to be dynamic in our approach to finance education so that we insure that our students continue to be the best. What is the current state of finance education? What changes do we foresee going forward? The finance core course is very important for providing a foundation for all business students and recruitment of finance majors. Currently the following topics are very common to the core class; time value of money, bond valuation, stock valuation, capital budgeting, and risk and return. What topics in the core finance class are necessary for business majors and to adequately prepare finance majors for upper division classes? International? Working Capital Management? Should the introduction course be primarily corporate finance or a survey type course covering corporate finance, investments, and financial institutions and markets? We will discuss these issues and more.
