The true value of a career in finance can’t be measured in dollars and cents.
With about $829 billion dollars now in circulation, there’s definitely a need for trained professionals to help the rest of us manage it. Today, nearly 8 million Americans have well-paid careers in the world of finance, from Wall Street to Main Street, and in industries ranging from insurance to accounting. So where do you make the best investment for a future in finance? Bay State College.
