The finance minor complements a wide variety of majors by adding a dimension of analytical and practical application of finance theory. You will integrate cases on real companies with theoretical instruction in the classroom to develop a framework for financial problem solving. Topics covered include corporate finance, investments, mergers and acquisitions, accounting, international finance, and financial derivatives.
Finance Economics majors are not eligible for a Finance minor.
In keeping with standard practice in the Economics Department, students cannot “double-count” more than two units with any other curriculum within the department. If a student’s major/minor combinations result in more than two units of overlap of required courses, the student must substitute an additional course to cover the overlap. For example, Business Administration majors must take at least 2.5 units of this proposed finance minor. A Business Administration major wanting to minor in finance will need to take an additional minimum 0.5 unit finance or business course.
