Finance Minor

The College of Business Finance Minor allows students to expand their field of study and specialize within a quantitative and applied business discipline. The minor is best-suited for students with either a current quantitative major, or a strong interest in working with numbers. Within the minor students may pursue either a general finance, corporate finance, or investment specialization. The minor will offer potential opportunities for students who wish to leverage their existing major and distinguish themselves for employment within many business settings, including a corporation, non-profit, or start-up.
