A minor in finance broadens the learning experiences and professional opportunities of business students by providing them with knowledge in the basic elements of managerial financial. By enhancing understanding of this critical business function, this minor can enhance any business major.

Special offerings for each semester may be found in the Schedule of Classes.

Requirements for the minor in Finance

Elective courses


Three courses in 3000 or 4000 level finance (FIN) courses

Either ACC 3010 or ACC 4003 or ACC 4150 may satisfy three credits toward the finance minor.


Additional requirements


A minimum grade of C must be earned in each course in the finance minor and in the prerequisites for each course. This minor is open to all students except finance majors.

To earn this minor, and to take 3000- and 4000-level business classes, non-business students must meet with the minor coordinator and have an approved minor authorization form detailing the courses and the prerequisites required for the given minor. Once approved for the minor, students must take all the remaining courses in the minor at Oakland University. Students must complete the prescribed courses for the minor with a grade of C or better in each course and the prerequisites for each course. Transfer students planning to earn a minor must earn at least nine credits toward the minor at Oakland University; at least six of these nine credits must be in courses at the 3000 level or above.
