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 3220 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 3680 , FIN 4250 , or FIN 4300 , ACC 3200 or ACC 3500 under a previous catalog will be able to count these courses as electives.
