Concentrate in Finance

The finance curriculum can be divided into two subfields - corporate finance and investments/capital markets. This finance chart lists the advanced electives by the subfield to which they belong and the associated prerequisites. Note that the material in several courses overlaps both subfields.

If you are not concentrating in Finance, but would like to be have some exposure to corporate finance and investment/capital markets, Foundations of Finance (FINC-UB 2) followed by Corporate Finance (FINC-UB 7) provides an excellent overview of these two areas in finance.
