"Finance Major" Colleges in Chicago Land Area
I need advice about which colleges have good Finance Major undergrad programs in Chicago land area
M.J. answers from Chicago on August 11, 2009
I got my MBA from DePaul and they have a great undergrad program. Pretty much any college will have a Finance Major, you just have to stick with the ones that have good reputations.
I would stay away from any online schools. They don't seem to have lots of credibility in the real world, at least according to the people I have talked to.

My husband rec'd his undergrad finance degree from DePaul. He is very happy with the education he rec'd although he did this while working full-time in the finance industry providing daily exposure to real life situations. I'd be happy to ask him specific questions on your behalf. If so, send me a personal message.

I've heard that Northern Illinois University has the top rated finance program in the state.
M.K. answers from Chicago on August 11, 2009
There are so many wonderful private colleges in the Chicagoland area with terrific business schools: Loyola, DePaul, Northwestern, etc. As for Public Universities, Northern Illinois University has a good business school and has campuses in the suburban area (Naperville, Hoffman Estates, etc.) Also, University of Illinois has a campus in Chicago. You can't go wrong with an Undergraduate Degree in Business from any of the schools!
