Undergraduate Concentration in Financial Management for Business Students (excluding Accounting Majors)
The Department of Finance and Economics is offering a new program to help students enhance their accounting and finance skills. It will be in the form of a “concentration” that prepares the student for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examinations. This certification can be very worthwhile for a number of careers relating to corporate finance/accounting. We recommend that participants enroll in their junior year to take advantage of the student discount on the CMA exams. We highly encourage a student to complete both Part 1 and Part 2 of the CMA exams before graduation.
|To enroll in the concentration, a student (non-accounting majors) must have completed the following pre-requisites with at least a C:|
|ACC 210||Financial Accounting|
|ACC 220||Managerial Uses of Accounting|
|FIN 220||Introduction to Finance|
|To complete the concentration, a minimum grade of C is necessary in each course.|
The concentration must be taken with another major in the College of Business Administration and requires 12 credits (4 classes).
|ACC 302||Cost Management|
|FIN 309||Intermediate Corporate Finance|
|PMBA 8324||Financial Reporting (1)|
|Electives: Take any one of the following:|
|ACC 321||Internal Auditing|
|FIN 315||Financial Modeling|
|FIN 330||Corporate Cash Management|
|All of the above are existing courses offered either every semester or once per year.|
(1) To take this course you must have a minimum of a 3.00 GPA or approval from the Department of Finance and Economics Chair. This course can be satisfied by completion of ACC 310 and ACC 311.
