Finance Minor Online Application

The finance minor provides students with basic understanding of corporate finance, investment, financial markets, institutions, as well as analytical and critical thinking skills. It prepares students for a wide array of careers such as financial analyst, budgeting officer, and planner in financial institutions, other for-the-profit businesses, non-profit organizations or governments. Those pursuing a B.S. in Accounting will receive recognition of financial skills beneficial to CPA preparation. Similar benefits accrue to those studying Economics or Actuarial Science; both are areas where graduates can benefit by enhancing their skills and understanding of financial planning and management.
