The Finance minor provides students with a strong foundation in areas related to corporate financial management, investment analysis and management, risk management, management consulting, banking and other financial institution administration. The minor is well suited not only for non-Finance business majors, but also for students who are not business majors and are interested in a possible career in finance.
For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors. The School of Business residency requirement for this minor supersedes the university requirement: at least nine credits must be earned at Mason.
At least eight credits of the minor courses must be unique to the Finance Minor and not applied toward any other major, minor, or concentration. Students must achieve a grade of C or better in each course that is applied toward the minor.
