Courses in Finance minor

To take Finance as a minor, you need 22.5 ECTS from the profile’s portfolio of courses.

A good advice is to include at least one of the core courses.

International degree students may combine three elective courses (22.5 ECTS) from the list into a minor concentration. International students are, however, not required to have a minor.

Note that the minor cannot include courses with course code from own major (this applies for all students starting their programme in autumn 2017 or later).
