Excellent. There are many variations of Finance Managers. You may be involved in pure accounting or in strategic finance...all exciting roles as you develop your career. As in all careers, finance requires hard work to learn the technical accounting and finance skills, and more importantly, it is important to gain the valuable experience so that you can apply your finance skills to the business area you are assigned. Also keep in mind that good finance managers are more than technical accountants. You want to be a business person with finance skills...think about it like a "T" where you are broad on understanding the business and deep on the finance skills.
The good thing about finance is that money flows through the business like blood in a body, touching and enriching each part from the tip of the toes to the brin. So as a finance manager you have the opportunity to be involved in all parts of the business every day.
As a function that needs math, probability and statistics, if you want to work in finance, it's good to know that these studies will be necessary.
