B.S., Business Administration

The Finance major is designed for students who are interested in working in the financial sector or who would like a more financially-oriented general business education. There are three separate Finance options within the B.S. in Business Administration:

Requirements for BSBA, Option in Financial Analysis (pdf)

Requirements for BSBA, Option in Financial Planning (pdf)

Requirements for BSBA, Option in Risk Management and Insurance (pdf)

The Finance options are “impacted” which means that students must have completed at least 60 units and have a transcript GPA of 2.6 or higher to be admitted to the major. Students with less than 60 units are admitted as pre-Finance.  Once a student has 60 units and satisfies the GPA requirement they should immediately file a change of major form. When declaring the major, the student will also need to declare an Option (Financial Analysis, Financial Planning, or Risk Management and Insurance). Pre-majors do not need to declare an Option,

The Finance Minor is designed for students who would like education in the basics of financial analysis without taking the complete finance or business curriculum.  Students interested in declaring the minor should file a "Change of Minor" form.
