The Advanced Financial Analysis (AFA) minor is an honors-level program that provides students with a deep foundation in finance and accounting. In addition to coursework in those areas, students also complete classes in financial modeling and coding as applied to finance problems: financial valuation, interpreting financial statements, and python for finance are just some of the skills students will learn. Ultimately, the minor focuses on developing technical competence in a business environment, giving students the skills they need to solve problems in the real world.

When paired with a relevant major, the Advanced Financial Analysis minor prepares students for careers in corporate finance, accounting, investment or commercial banking, financial planning, or real estate. Become a financial consultant for clients in the private, public or government sectors, or continue your education at the graduate level in programs such as finance, accounting, business administration, or analytics.
