The money and finance minor prepares students to be successful in a wide variety of careers, including banking, investments and international business. Students learn 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. It also prepares liberal arts students with the essential business skills that will enable them to move into a managerial career track later on. Former graduates of this minor have said it provided them with excellent basic preparation for graduate school in business administration.
