Banking

In-demand, finance-focused careers

As shifting regulations and dynamics change the face of the banking industry, the demand for high-quality, knowledgeable employees is steadily growing. Many community, regional and local banks are facing a shortage of trained, degreed professionals to take on challenging new roles. In that role, you could help the banking industry meet current and future challenges as they comply with increasing and changing regulations. A banking degree from SFA will provide you with a strong background in the banking industry, preparing you to meet these challenges.

A variety of learning experiences

The Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Banking prepares students to fill the growing need for qualified bank personnel. The program combines core coursework in business and finance with a variety of industry-specific learning opportunities.

The program will also offer seminars to fulfill the compliance training requirements of officers and directors of local banks, as well as outreach programs to help existing bank employees explore and prepare to address current issues facing banks.
