Finance Minor

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, financial derivatives, real estate, wealth management, and more. 

Curriculum (minimum 5.0 or 5.5 units):


Three upper-level finance electives (FIN course code), of which at least one must be either Fin 462 Advanced Corporate Finance or Fin 465 Modern Portfolio Theory.  Any combination of two module courses (0.5 units) is equivalent to one unit.  Elective course offerings change every year, and new ones are sometimes developed. Talk to Prof. MacLeod or Prof. Younkman for updated information.


In keeping with standard practice in the Economics and Business Department, students cannot “double-count” more than three units with any other curriculum within the department. If a student’s major/minor combinations result in more than three units of overlap of required courses, the student must substitute an additional course to cover the overlap.

Finance majors are not eligible for a Finance minor.
