Finance is a term almost everyone knows, but they may not know how to understand it. Everyone has a bank account they put money into and pull money from. Finance incorporates all aspects of managing that money in the account. Governments and large companies use large finance accounts to store money.

Finance has multiple areas to consider when learning about the subject. There is personal finance, which is your individual finances that you manage daily. There is corporate finance, which businesses worldwide use to run their daily operations and spending. Lastly is public finance, which governments use to manage a country's revenue, expenditures and debts. Within each of these three areas of finance, different areas make it up, including investing, budgeting, lending, saving, forecasting, borrowing, and studying money. 

Learning finance can benefit anyone, whether you want to understand how to improve your financial standing or enter the industry professionally. If you pursue financial jobs, you can find work in every industry worldwide, as every business needs money to run.

Industries That Use Finance

Finance is a part of everyday life, making it an important skill for professionals in almost every industry. When it comes to learning finance, there are many different avenues you can go career-wise. If you're interested in entering a certain industry, you can pick the school or class you want to take to fit more into that industry. If you aren't sure where to apply your financial skills, here are some industries to consider. 

  • Healthcare: When choosing to enter the healthcare industry with a financial background, you are dealing with the financial resources that cover the collective health needs of each individual and ensure the health system continues to run efficiently. 
  • Transportation: The financial aspect of the transportation industry deals with funding and collecting funding that improves infrastructure. 
  • Agriculture: In the agriculture industry, finance deals more with loans. There are agriculture-specific loans that help farms continue to grow. 
  • Retail: The retail industry deals with money from top to bottom. Jumping into this industry can include anything from pricing items to maintaining a company's finances. 
  • Manufacturing: The manufacturing industry involves purchasing inventory and equipment, which can tie up a lot of capital in a company. You can either deal with the finance aspect, which deals with managing these high-cost assets or go into financing, which deals with the financial strategy to acquire assets. 
  • Information Technology: When combining IT and finance, you typically create new technology for the financial industry. However, there are still financial jobs that deal with the financial data of IT companies. 
  • Aerospace: Financing in this industry refers to financing the purchase or creation of an aircraft.
  • Business: Business finance is essential for procuring goods, raw materials, and other economic activities. More specifically, it is essential for running a business.
  • Financial Services: Within the financial services industry, banks offer various services such as mortgages, credit cards, payment services, tax preparation and planning, accounting, and investing.
  • Real Estate: As a general rule, real estate refers to the land and permanent structures, such as homes or improvements attached to the land, whether natural or constructed. Finance includes the financing required to purchase land or investment properties that will produce profit for the owner. 

Finance Jobs & Salaries

Regardless of the industry, you can find several different financial jobs to consider. Each position will require different financial skills to be successful, but if you know which position you want to pursue, you can gear your training toward that position. Here are some financial careers for you to consider. 

Accounting is responsible for ensuring accurate and clear financial documents, including taxes. Besides doing math, accountants need to be able to communicate their conclusions to a wide range of audiences, which can involve writing reports or presenting their findings verbally.
