Why Choose a Finance Minor?

This minor will prepare students for careers in financial institutions and business. Many students with other business majors are strongly encouraged to take additional courses in finance to prepare them for either finance related jobs or to strengthen their training and expertise in accounting, marketing, management, or computer information systems. By combining one of these majors with a minor in finance, the student is prepared for a greater number of career opportunities and greater flexibility. The designation of a Finance Minor provides such students with additional evidence of subject matter expertise.

Admission Requirements

Any current Ferris State University undergraduate student who is in good academic standing may enroll in this minor.

Graduation Requirements

A Ferris student will receive the Finance Minor upon graduation with a Baccalaureate degree, and after successful completion of the requirements for the minor with a minimum 2.0 grade point average in Finance Minor courses.
