Letter from the department head

Dr. Sorin Sorescu
Foreman R. and Ruby Bennett Chair in Business Administration 

Professor and Department Head of Finance
Mays Business School


The Department of Finance enjoys a national reputation because of the quality of its academic programs and faculty, and I continue to be honored and humbled to serve as the department’s chair. I am always impressed and proud of the accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff.

We hope our web site will acquaint you with our teaching, research and professional achievements as well as the courses and programs that we offer to our students. The department offers several degree options for students who are seeking a finance degree:

  • Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance
  • Master of Real Estate
  • Master of Science in Finance
  • Ph.D. in Business Administration – Finance

The outstanding curriculum of the Department of Finance provides students with a heightened understanding of the synergetic disciplines of financial management, financial markets and institutions, and financial planning. Students use this knowledge to sharpen their analytical skills, broaden their comprehension of today’s markets, and financial decisions by investors, firms, and government.

As department chair, I appreciate the loyalty of both the Finance Council and the Aggie Network. Both groups provide support through mentoring and counsel to the department and our students, and help ensure that we remain on the cutting edge of finance.
