The finance minor is intended for students who have an interest in developing a strong foundation in financial decision-making by offering courses designed to develop the student's analytical skills and financial problem solving abilities. Such skills can broaden a student’s career opportunities, as most business decisions are financially based. These same skills are also important when making personal investment decisions, regardless of career. The minor is especially valuable for students preparing for an MBA, or in engineering and the natural and physical sciences, as well as students considering graduate work in business. A finance minor helps prepare students to apply their major degree to fields such as banking, financial services, corporate finance, investment management, real estate, insurance enterprise risk management and consulting.
