Prospective Undergraduates

Minor In Finance

The use of mathematical tools such as statistics, probability, computing, differential equations, optimization, to name a few,
has become now essential in all areas of finance and economics. This has created new opportunities for the mathematics students, and has given a new edge to mathematics studies.

The Minor in Finance has been designed to respond to this trend. It is offered to selected students who will be taking courses in banking and finance offered by the Nanyang Business School(NBS), in addition to their mathematics curriculum.

The Minor in Finance programme is open only to selected Mathematical Sciences students. The division will decide on the admission requirements. Students are required to first enroll for BU8201 (Business Finance) and receive a minimum of B+ grade in order to continue in the programme.



Refer to the following link for the criteria in detail.

Students will be required to take a total of 15 academic units in order to fulfill the requirements of a Minor in Finance. There are two compulsory courses and two elective courses, selected from existing banking and finance courses offered by the Division of Banking and Finance at NBS.
