About the Area
The Area of Finance supervises the following degree and certificate programs:
The goal of the finance major is to prepare students for careers in banking, business finance, investment management, and real estate. To declare a finance major, students must make a B or better in ACCT 2300 and FIN 3320 .
Prospective finance students are encouraged to enroll in FIN 3320 during the second semester of their sophomore year as opposed to the first semester of their junior year. This allows finance majors to spread their core finance coursework over two years. This structure enables finance students to legitimately apply for finance internships in both their sophomore and junior summers. Such opportunities will make them more competitive in the job market. Within this structure, ACCT 2300 and ECO 2302 remain as prerequisites for FIN 3320 . However, ACCT 2301 and MATH 2345 will be corequisites for enrollment in FIN 3320 for students who have declared their intention of majoring in finance.
The Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance offers a concentration in real estate.
