Requirements for the major in finance

Major adviser: Ellen Zhu

The major in finance leads to an understanding of the theoretical foundations of finance and develops the specific skills, modes of analysis and institutional background useful to work in the finance areas of profit-making businesses or not-for- profit enterprises.

To fulfill requirements for the finance major, students must be admitted to major standing in finance, complete the core program and earn a minimum of 25 credits, as specified below, with a grade of 2.0 or better in each major course. A grade of 2.0 or better must be achieved in FIN 322  and in each prerequisite for a finance course before a finance major, or any Oakland University student, may begin work in that finance course.

Students who have taken FIN 368  , FIN 425 , or FIN 430  , ACC 320  or ACC 415  under a previous catalog will be able to count these courses as electives.

Required in the core – 4 credits

*In lieu of ACC 301, students may substitute both ACC 310 and 311.

**ACC 320 (3) or ACC 415 (3) may be substituted for one finance elective.
