We offer students who are seeking finance-related careers the option to start their finance course work in the first half-semester (starting in September) of their first year. While the finance core is offered in the second half-semester (starting in November) of their first year, students who are able to waive one of the early core courses can take a finance elective in the first half-semester in lieu of the finance core. For students who are unable to waive any of the early core courses, we offer an accounting course before school starts.
Those who pass this course can waive the accounting core course and instead take the finance elective. This arrangement makes our students competitive in the finance job market by enabling them to take more finance electives before internship interviews.
