In-demand, finance-focused careers

Evolving marketplace dynamics, new technology applications, shifting customer demographics, increasing competition and enhanced regulatory oversight are transforming the banking industry at an unprecedented rate. Community, regional and national banks are facing a shortage of trained, degreed professionals who are prepared to take on the challenges presented by this transformation.

More than banking

The opportunity to use your SFA banking degree is not limited to commercial banks. Financial services companies such credit unions, mortgage companies, agricultural cooperatives, consumer finance companies, technology driven “fin-tech” companies, and federal and state regulatory agencies require talented employees who understand the fundamentals of the banking industry.
