Finance prerequisite courses
Students with a strong foundation of knowledge from preparatory courses in economics, accounting, statistics and calculus will have a better understanding and appreciation of advanced finance topics. Finance is inherently quantitative, and finance theories are based on economic reasoning and an understanding of financial reporting. For this reason, students must meet prerequisite requirements before they are allowed to enroll in courses offered by the Department of Finance. Prerequisites from outside the department for finance courses include: ACC 231 or 232 and 241 or 242, MAT 210 or 270 and 211 or 271, CIS 105 or 220, ECN 211, 212 and 221.
