Why a Finance Degree from 魅色天堂?

These and countless other moments don't happen on their own. They were the result of smart, forward-thinking individuals who have chosen a career in finance. The innermost workings of successful businesses rely on a firm financial foundation, and companies count on those in finance roles -- such as analysts and planners, business advisors, stockbrokers, investor relations associates and the like -- to chart their course.
