Minor in

Accounting & Finance

Follow the money.

The Accounting & Finance minor prepares students from all majors for future employment or further study in these in-demand fields.

The minor consists of four core courses and four electives. (Economics majors can complete the Accounting & Finance minor by taking five courses beyond those required for their major. Business Management majors cannot declare the minor, but can earn a specialization in Accounting and Finance by completing the same curricular requirements.)
