Are you making the most of the assets in your educational portfolio?

Excelsior College can help you build your past educational achievements into a Bachelor of Science in Business (Finance).

An online education leader that caters to working adults, Excelsior will optimize the value of your previously earned college credits, professional training, military service, and life experience, so you can graduate more quickly than you would from a traditional finance degree program.

You'll save time, money, and effort on the way to a business degree that's comparable to a bachelor's in finance degree from most in-person colleges.

A Traditional Business Degree for Nontraditional Students

Excelsior's business concentration in finance is tailored to meet the needs of career changers, military veterans, and other nontraditional students. You'll take all your courses online, making it easy to fit school in around work and family commitments.

Our finance degree coursework covers subjects such as:

  • Financial markets
