Corporate Finance Concentration


The concentration in Corporate Finance, through its courses, teaches a core set of skills in financial modeling, debt and equity issues, valuation, mergers and acquisitions, financial planning, risk management, financial reporting and analysis, and taxation necessary in corporate finance positions as well as in other careers such as consulting.

Our students develop the skills and knowledge base to undertake positions in:

  • investment banks and commercial banks
  • corporate finance, treasury, and business development positions in Fortune 500 and mid-cap companies
  • financial consulting, general management consulting, and corporate strategy roles
  • venture capital and private equity firms, and
  • general management positions

At UNC Kenan-Flagler, we routinely place about a quarter of our top graduates in corporate finance: investment banks, corporations, and venture capital. The investment-banking component of corporate finance placement has historically been around 15% of our hiring. Another important placement for students is in corporate finance consulting positions. We also commonly place graduates into industry finance and commercial bank positions through our alumni network.
