The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree in corporate finance is designed to prepare you for a career in finance in a corporate environment. The role of a corporate finance manager is to maximize bottom line opportunities for a business. Corporate finance managers are responsible for identifying and securing merger and acquisition deals, managing and investing large monetary funds, and buying and selling financial products. The corporate finance manager steers the financial direction of the business and undertakes all strategic financial planning and reporting to stakeholders. Corporate finance managers handle all aspects of large transactions for a business, including due diligence.
The role of the financial manager is changing in response to technological advances that have substantially reduced the amount of time it takes to produce financial reports. Financial managers’ main responsibility used to be monitoring a company’s finances, but they now do more data analysis and advise senior managers on ways to maximize profits. They often work in teams, acting as business advisors to top executives.
