Program description


Modern Business is characterized by its emphasis upon finance. The application of sound financial management principles often will be the difference between success and failure in business.

Courses prescribed for those who wish to major in finance are designed to provide a background for financial management of business concerns and, if students desire, to specialize in bank management, corporation finances and investment management. Since financial policies of business enterprises are subject to economic principles which make all businesses financially interdependent and sensitive to disturbances in the economic structure, students in this field should study the economic, as well as the technical, administrative aspects of finance and accounting. Prescribed work in this area attempts to emphasize all three phases of the subject.

All finance majors must comply with requirements of the advanced business prerequisites for enrollment in upper-division courses and must complete the common body of knowledge courses as listed previously. All finance courses for the major require a minimum grade of C (not C-).
