Concentration in Financial Management

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 210Financial Accounting
ACC 220Managerial Uses of Accounting
FIN 220Introduction 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 302Cost Management
