Money and Finance Minor
The money and finance minor is a package of courses designed to prepare students to be successful in a wide variety of careers, including banking, investments and international business. The central skills that students learn in these courses are to read and analyze critically an organization’s financial reports and to think strategically about positioning an organization in the financial environment. The money and finance minor provides students with an introduction to the economic environment and basic economic, accounting and finance concepts, a complete introduction to the banking system and tools that can be applied to for-profit and not-for-profit businesses.
The minor enhances and complements major fields of study such as accounting, management and economics.
