Pursuing a finance major as an undergraduate student is a good idea for someone who knows that he or she intends to pursue business professions upon his or her graduation. Such professions might still require interested students to earn finance degrees at the graduate level, but pursuing finance majors at the undergraduate level will lay the necessary education foundation for later pursuing those graduate level degrees.  The careers that a finance major might prepare you for would include professions such as bond brokering, corporate finance, financial analysis, financial planning, underwriting, investment banking, venture capitalism, and portfolio management.
