Financial Economics


24 credits

The Financial Economics minor provides students with a foundation in the economics of financial markets and institutions, and introduces them to various types of financial assets and models associated with the allocation of financial resources. With the Financial Economics minor, students gain an understanding of specialized terminology used in finance and the fundamental concepts of a market economy. The minor is open to all students, except those majoring in economics, who should, instead, consider the financial economics track within their major.
