Employment of financial analysts is projected to grow 11 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.1 A growing range of financial products and the need for in-depth knowledge of geographic regions are expected to lead to strong employment growth.
Demand for financial analysts tends to grow with overall economic activity. Financial analysts will be needed to evaluate investment opportunities when new businesses are established or existing businesses expand. In addition, emerging markets throughout the world are providing new investment opportunities, which require expertise in geographic regions where those markets are located.
Demand is also projected to increase as the growth of “big data” and technological improvements allow financial analysts to access a wider range of data and conduct higher quality analysis. This analysis will help businesses manage their finances, identify investment trends, and deliver new products or services to clients.1
“One of our main goals has been to figure out ways to prepare our students for market demand. For that reason, we created the Global Finance Trading certificate program to be the initial steps in understanding global finance. Afterward, if a student wants to pursue this arena, the credits will count toward our Master of Science in Finance program.”
