Note that ECON 201B Principles of Macroeconomics, ECON 202B Principles of Microeconomics, MIST 201 Management Information Systems and Applications or equivalent, and DSCI 259 Applied Statistics and Business Research or ECON 361A Introductory Econometrics or STAT 180 are prerequisites for FINC 301 Principles of Finance. Students should bear this in mind when planning their academic coursework.
Note that the maximum overlap between a major and a minor is two courses. Students pursuing a major within the COB must already take ACCT 102 Principles of Accounting II and FINC 301 Principles of Finance. Thus, College of Business students may not double-count electives such as ACCT 401 Accounting Information Systems toward both their major and the minor; it would on count toward one of these programs.
