Finance is the science of funds management, with a focus on saving, lending, and investing money. The field of finance deals with the concepts of time, money, and risk, and how they are interrelated.
Upon completion of the first year, many St. Peter’s College students move to the U of S main campus to continue their studies. In some instances, students can complete the second year of studies with St. Peter's College. St. Peter’s students must meet the same promotion standards as U of S students in order to move into the second year of study. Please contact Student Services for more information on promotion standards. Further information on this program can be found directly on the University of Saskatchewan's website.

The finance industry expanded at a fast pace for almost three decades. Currently, the industry is a major employer. It ranks behind only construction and health care in the number of jobs. The major banks alone employ more than 170,000 individuals and there are no signs that this situation will change any time soon. As the number of individuals retiring over the next ten years increases, the need for financial services employees is also likely to increase.
The Finance Department is well positioned to prepare students for future careers in finance. The faculty are competent, dedicated educators, experts in their fields of specialization, and they appreciate their students’ needs and aspirations. The courses and topics are carefully selected to provide students with specialized financial knowledge and the necessary management skills to be competent financial managers. Students who major in finance graduate well trained and ready to compete and succeed in the market place.
Students who major in finance may continue their professional development with careers like the following:
- financial analyst
- financial planner
- real estate agent/broker
- stock broker
