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.
The finance minor is only open to students who are currently pursuing a major in Business Administration, Economics, Accounting or Actuarial Sciences.
