Learn to find opportunities where others see risks with a degree in finance. Students within Henderson State's finance program will learn to think critcally about current market trends and how to challenge the mainstream view through case studies and real-world data regarding issues faced by corporate and investment professionals.

Our students take professional and investment industry qualifying exams and gain hands-on experience managing the Ross Whipple Student Managed Investment Fund (RWSMIF). The RWSMIF is a real investment portfolio valued at more than $750,000.

The finance program at Henderson State also prepares you to earn the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) charter or Certified Financial PlannerTM (CFP®) certificate. We are the only school in the State of Arkansas that is recognized by the CFP Board.
