The Global Economy and increased sophistication of financial products and services have created unprecedented demand for internationally qualified Finance professionals with a global perspective. Opportunities abound locally, regionally, and internationally for graduates with sound financial knowledge at Degree level, superior communication skills, strong analytical and thinking skills (not just exam results!), and an all important global outlook. Projected job growth in this field remains high so students can count on long-term career and job opportunities – and since Finance is a truly global field, these opportunities are worldwide.

Northwood University offers an ideal path for global finance students. A unique combination of practical, real-life experience and academic classroom theory in the holistic American education system ensures graduates that are in high demand. Northwood graduates not only have the required business skills, they also have the necessary communication, analytical, and thinking skills required for success in today’s highly competitive global economy.

And since Northwood is global itself (with 3 American campuses, over 20 extension centers in the US, and International Program Centers in Europe, China, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Sri Lanka) it is well prepared to produce global graduates. Since the Northwood programme incorporates local content and not just exams from overseas, students will be well prepared for local and regional jobs as well as international jobs – Northwood graduates understand the Colombo Stock Exchange just as they do financial operations in global centers like New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, and Dubai.

Students can start their Finance degree at ANC and either finish here or at Northwood in the US. The ANC option makes both paths affordable as a result of lower tuition fees, reduced living expenses, and better chances of scholarships and financial grants. With the Northwood programme students have complete flexibility.
