This certificate is designed for non-finance business majors to study intermediate-level finance topics. Building on the basic finance concepts introduced in FINA 320, this certificate will provide students with more in-depth coverage of the three major areas of finance: Investment, Corporate Finance, and Financial Markets and Institutions. This certificate is designed to help non-finance majors to incorporate financial perspectives in their decision making and to understand the impact of evolving financial markets on corporations.
Admission to the certificate program is competitive based on GPA and is consistent with the limited admission standards for the finance major and minor. To earn the certificate, students must have a grade of C or above for each required course. All certificate courses must be completed within four academic years. No transfer credits may be applied toward the certificate.
Interested students should apply no later than the beginning of their final semester prior to graduation. Applications are available in the Department of Finance.
