Finance, Insurance and Economics

Big picture thinkers thrive in fields like Finance or Economics, because Mississippi State teaches these students how to use key concepts and statistics to help companies make decisions about their scarce resources. Through multiple networking opportunities such as conferences, career fairs, and competitions like the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Investment Challenge, students majoring in the Finance and Economics department are pushed to grow professionally as well as academically. 

Students interested in diving deeper into their field are encouraged to consider the Risk Management and Insurance concentration that is available to all Finance majors. By adding the RMI concentration, students join a close-knit department that works closely with professionals and alumni in the industry to help connect students to jobs after graduation.
