The Finance Career Cluster includes career opportunities related to making strategic decisions to report, obtain, save, protect, and grow the financial assets of business and/or individuals.

On May 4, 2022 the Connecticut State Board of Education adopted the MBA Research Standards for the Career Clusters of Business Management & Administration, Finance, and Marketing.   The MBA Research Standards reflect the importance of equipping students with the skills and knowledge needed for any career in business. The MBA Research standards are organized on the premise of starting broad and narrowing in specificity as the student progresses in their program of study. This ensures that students enter the workforce, college, or a career with an understanding of these core concepts.
