    This is a sample schedule for a well-prepared student. Some courses are generally offered both Fall and Spring and so some re-arrangement of classes is possible. Other courses (such as FIN415 & FIN433) are offered only in Spring; other courses (such as FIN434, FIN443, and FIN444) are offered only in Fall. You should double check pre-requisites and requirements. For example FIN435 is open to Seniors only.

    If you have any intention - even a vague one - of aspiring to a degree in Finance, you should make an appointment with the Finance Department Advisor as soon as possible and again every semester before you begin registering for courses.
