The Certificate in Applied Finance and Economics program equips you with a base of analytical methods and tools used in finance and economics and develops critical and quantitative thinking. Discover how to measure and secure the efficient use of financial resources. Learn problem-solving skills, including the ability to analyze business and financial conditions. Courses include an in-depth study of markets, financial institutions, international finance, investments, and micro/macroeconomics. You will apply this knowledge to actual problems encountered in the workplace.
The program is open to all students but is particularly attractive to students majoring in either business or economics since it integrates courses from both disciplines. In size and scope, the certificate is between a minor and a major and is jointly offered by the business program and the economics program.
