**MBA students at LCB who are required to take FIN 7014 as part of the MBA Core may not count this towards the Certificate. They will be required to take an elective instead. Undergraduate finance majors will be able to waive FIN 7014 – they will also be expected to take an elective instead. 

The electives listed above represent the typical set from which most students will choose. Students may be able to choose other electives to match specific career goals, with the approval of the Program Director.
