College of Business Administration
Department of Finance
Room 404, Business Administration Building
Some knowledge of finance is necessary to understand and work in most businesses and organizations. Profits and value creation are the “bottom lines” to which companies direct their efforts. The Finance minor allows student to gain some familiarity with financial management as well as the financial system of institutions and markets in which firms must operate. Some acquaintance with investment techniques may help students in managing their personal finances. The Finance minor is particularly useful for business students in other majors who take the requisite courses, and other students who desire to acquire some understanding of finance without having to take all the core business school requisites. Both groups are exposed to important fundamentals, yet they also will have the flexibility to consider several areas of finance.
