The finance minor is a customized 18-unit program available only to non-Eller Students. The curriculum is designed with two prerequisite courses to be taken during the academic year, with four core courses to be taken during the summer.
The goal of the finance minor program is to promote financial literacy. In an increasingly complex financial environment, university graduates in all disciplines will require financial management knowledge and understanding in both their professional careers and their personal lives. Specifically, young professionals must know financial terminology, how to manage budgets, how to carefully invest money and resources, and how to analyze financial decisions. In short, they need to know how to make informed financial decisions for their professional and personal lives.
