Princeton undergraduates concentrating in any department can apply to earn the Minor in Finance. The Minor is designed to attest to students’ proficiency in the field of finance, including the pricing of financial assets, banking and financial intermediation, financial regulatory policy, corporate finance and governance, and more.
The Bendheim Center delivers a Minor in Finance program that is both highly rigorous and supportive. In your courses, research, and career objectives, you will experience the full backing of our faculty and staff as you reach for success. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, focused academics, and a collaborative environment, there are so many reasons to pursue a Minor in Finance from Princeton University.
Bridging the gap between finance, monetary economics, and macroeconomics, BCF provides fertile ground for cutting-edge research that intersects disciplines. Our students benefit from a curriculum that combines computer science, financial engineering, economics, mathematics, operations research, machine learning, and more.
At BCF, we take the theoretical approach. We believe that it’s not enough to simply know “how” to solve an equation or problem; we dig deeper to understand the big picture and the connections between themes.
Through rigorous analysis, our students lift each project to an abstract level and then apply that understanding to many different problems. As a result, BCF’s Minor in Finance students learn the why—and the how—as well as the impact on a global scale.
Service is infused in every aspect of life at Princeton. The Bendheim Center approaches that mission from the perspective of finance and the macroeconomy. We seek to understand how challenges facing the global society can be solved through monetary economics, fiscal policy, and the ever-growing interconnectedness of the world.
