Why study finance online through OSU?

Broadly speaking, finance is the management of money and includes activities such as investing, lending and budgeting. In a corporate setting, finance functions include managing cash, evaluating corporate investing and raising money. In banking, finance functions include helping firms and households raise cash as well as managing cash and investments. Finance is also involved on a personal level through the management of wealth and investments for individuals.
