There is no minor in Corporate Finance.

The Corporate Finance Concentration at Wilkes is constructed upon the Sidhu School’s common foundation courses and the General Education requirements of the University. Corporate Finance Concentration students begin their studies with FIN 240 . Subsequent courses cover other topics such as financial analysis, long-term strategic financial planning, risk management and insurance, and money and banking.

Students in Sidhu School majors and minors must complete all required ACC courses at Wilkes University, except ACC 161  and ACC 162  which may be transferred from accredited institutions if they are determined to be the academic equivalent of the course offered at Wilkes University. Any other course that a student seeks to transfer as an ACC course would only be eligible to transfer as ACC 198, ACC 298 or ACC 398 depending on the rigor of the course.

Common career paths for graduates in this major are in the fields of financial management, financial analysis, financial examiners, as well as those that function in either accounting or finance in corporations. For those considering an academic career, the major may lead to an MBA and/or doctoral program
