Speaking of PBA...

"The Finance program at PBA has challenged me and developed me academically by teaching me the fundamental financial principles, the 'science' of advanced financial analysis and everything in between. My professors do an excellent job of tying everything together by studying real world examples and scenarios with us in class. I feel adequately prepared for my future as a financial professional.”
