Finance minors enjoy the challenge and discipline of financial theory. minors develop quantitative, analytical and communication skills through courses dedicated to corporate financial management and personal financial services such as investments and insurance. It all takes place in an environment that stresses the ethical application of professional knowledge and skills.
How can I get involved as a finance minor?
Minors can join the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). IMA provides a dynamic forum for management-accounting and finance professionals to develop and advance their careers through certification, research and practice development, education, and networking. The Student Investment Group (SIG) exposes it members to real-world applications of financial theory. The SIG is not a simulation; members invest in real markets with real money.
