Welcome to the UCF College of Business’s Department of Finance. For undergraduate students, we offer the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration (BSBA), with majors in finance and real estate. We also offer minor programs in finance, real estate and international business.

Finance majors who wish to specialize in an area may earn certificates in banking, corporate finance, or investments. Real Estate majors may specialize by earning certificates in real estate brokerage, real estate appraisal, or mortgage brokerage. For graduate students, we offer a finance concentration for the MBA degree, and the Ph.D. degree in Business Administration with a major in finance. We have an outstanding faculty of award-winning scholars and teachers with a wide range of research and teaching interests. In addition to our 19 full-time faculty members on the Orlando main campus, we have full-time finance faculty members at the eastern, southern and western regional campuses.

The newest addition to our department is the Dr. P. Phillips School of Real Estate, which was established in 2006 by a $2.5 million gift from Dr. Phillips, Inc. With an anticipated match from the state, the school will have a $5 million endowment. Financial services and real estate represent a large and growing part of our state and regional economies. The exciting career opportunities in these areas have helped us become the largest department in the College of Business, with nearly 1,000 undergraduate students majoring in finance and real estate. Our graduates find a wide variety of career opportunities in areas such as financial planning, corporate finance, investments, banking, insurance, residential and commercial real estate, real estate appraisal and development, and property management.

Our commitment to business partnerships is also reflected in our institutes and endowed chairs:
