Recommended Course Sequence
Successful completion of FIN 316 (or its transferred equivalent) is mandatory for any further coursework in finance. Additionally, OBA 312 is required before taking FIN 380.
FIN 473 is an advanced class that covers in more depth topics considered in 316, and should be taken as soon after completion of FIN 380 as is feasible for the student’s schedule in order to better prepare students for corporate recruiting visits in fall and winter.
All other classes in the discipline can be taken in any order available, as none of the other courses have a prerequisite other than FIN 316.

3+1 Finance Pathway
The 3+1 Finance Pathway is an opportunity for qualified incoming freshmen interested in finance to complete both the bachelor’s degree in accounting and the master of science in finance degree in four years. Through an evaluation of college-ready credits (e.g., advanced placement and international baccalaureate), these high-achieving students are fast-tracked for admission to the Lundquist College of Business one full year before their contemporaries. Students in this program can complete their undergraduate degree in three years, with the fourth year used to complete the Master of Finance program.
