Finance courses are similar to Banking and Finance courses, but they focus specifically on
finance, addressing how businesses raise, distribute, and use financial resources while managing risk.
Course content typically involves modeling financial decisions (such as borrowing, selling equity or
stock, lending or investing) typically undertaken by businesses.
The course is aligned to the New Jersey Core Content Standard 9.1 - Personal Financial Literacy, which states: “This standard outlines the important fiscal knowledge, habits, and skills that must be mastered in order for students to make informed decisions about personal finance. Financial literacy is an integral component of a student’s college and career readiness, enabling students to achieve fulfilling, financially-secure, and successful careers. “
