Financial Economics - Minor

A financial economics minor is a great addition for business and accounting majors! The courses for this minor provide the foundation for students to develop analytical skills to enter the corporate sector with a solid finance background and strong decision-making capabilities to lead and influence. The minor will prepare and empower students to take their finance skills into other parts of the corporate structure. Courses in financial economics are also very relevant for those who plan to sit for CPA or actuarial exams.

Outside of the classroom, our department works to provide all students with opportunities to enhance their St. Kate’s experience and increase the value they bring to organizations after graduation. Students can attend events hosted by the Minnesota Center for Diversity in Economics, such as “Socialism vs. Capitalism” or “The Economics of Immigration.” Economics Club is an outlet for students to engage with other passionate peers and local events. For example, students organize an annual trip to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. Moreover, students can gain practical finance experience through an internship.

This minor is offered in the College for Women only.
