Minor in Finance

Program Contact: Thomas Coe  203-582-3455

The tools you’ll acquire as a finance minor can be applied in fields as varied as health care and technology, public policy and nonprofit work. A basic understanding of how to create budgets and analyze financial data is an appealing skillset—one that employers look for, and one that can help you in whichever career path you decide to pursue.

You’ll examine issues of financial management, global investment, financial markets and corporate finance. And, while developing a foundation in these core areas, you’ll have some flexibility to complement the program with one non-finance course. Our Terry W. Goodwin ’67 Financial Technology Center is a great resource for exploring your interest in finance and offers opportunities to practice building financial models and analyzing real-time economic data.
