- About Plattsburgh
Sometimes it’s hard to understand the value of something until you require its use. Now being able to apply what I learned at Plattsburgh in the real world, I’ve realized that without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
This agency will only accredit programs of high quality and ensures that continuous improvement processes are evident in all areas. Nationally, only a handful of schools that only offer the undergraduate degree in business are accredited through AACSB International. Our finance program includes the business core and is thus subject to accreditation through AACSB, however the economics major does not require students to take the business core and is thus not subject to accreditation.
Students who take this option study financial markets in general with specific attention paid to portfolio management, money and capital markets, money and banking, options, international finance, etc. The finance program is excellent preparation for careers in banking (both commercial and investment banking), law, or graduate school. Recent graduates of this program are now working for Salomon SmithBarney, Goldman Sachs, UBS PaineWebber, and Cantor Fitzgerald, to name a few of the companies interested in hiring our graduates.
