The University of Tampa plans to plug a Tampa Bay education gap with the state's first bachelor's degree in financial services operations and systems.
The degree program, which starts this fall, is a response to demand from the financial services companies that have been setting up back-office operations in the bay area.
You can expect to see the new degree become another weapon in the recruiting arsenal of Tampa Bay economic development types.
The major "will allow us to offer financial services companies the most important incentive of all: a highly skilled work force," said Franklin Templeton vice president Ghassan Hakim.
