Finance is one of the most popular majors at the University of Arizona. In addition to a rigorous and integrated core curriculum taught by leading scholars, students in the finance major have the opportunity to engage in a number of additional opportunities, including the Financial Management Association (the UA chapter of the national organization), the investments club, and the Wall Street Scholars program.

The University of Arizona is in the process of creating a new classification and compensation architecture. This University Career Architecture Project (UCAP) will revolutionize the way we think about professions and manage compensation at the UA. It is a two year initiative that will replace the current classified staff and appointed professional categories of employment with market-based job functions and families. As an applicant, UCAP will create clearer career paths and opportunities and will help you make more informed pay decisions. To learn more about this project, please visit ucap.arizona.edu.
