Boehly Center Academic & Advising At-A-Glance

Most students at William & Mary begin the business major during the fall of junior year, coinciding with their admission to the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, but this model does not apply to all. Review the sample course paths by which a student can complete a Finance major based on advanced academic standing and/or application to the Distinguish Financial Management course. Please see here for more information on required courses and electives.

The internship and full-time recruiting timeline varies based on industries within finance. Our Finance Industry Roadmap below has information on each timeline and career option. Please also see the Careers and Networking tab for more information and advice on how to get a finance internship.
