New Finance Concentration and Minor Now Offered to Students

03 March 2010 12:00AM

Beginning with the class of 2012, economics students can select a finance concentration, and non-economics majors can obtain a minor in finance.

"The finance minor is an opportunity for non-Economics majors with strong quantitative skills to obtain exposure to a broad array of finance classes, without having to complete the extensive economics core curriculum," explained Professor Emma Rasiel, who teaches finance both in the classroom and through the Financial Education Partnership.

Requirements for the finance minor include one introductory economics course and a core course in finance, as well as some mathematics and statistics classes. Students will then select any three finance electives from a selection offered to both economics majors and finance minors.

For economics majors who would like to focus on finance, the department now offers a concentration in this area. Requirements for the concentration are similar to those for the economics major, with one additional core course in finance.

"Finance concentrators will also select at least three of their electives from among a designated set of finance courses," said Professor Rasiel.
