Finance Minor

Be a financial superhero!

No matter your career choice, you will still need to make decisions about money to reach a goal in your profession and in your life. For an individual, the goal could be retiring at age 40. For a marketing campaign, that may mean minimizing the cost to acquire a customer. For a business owner, it may mean getting money to produce a product. Successfully reaching the goal requires proficiency in financial management. A finance minor, combined with the major of your choice, gives you a financial proficiency that will set you apart from others in your chosen career.
