Finance plays a critical role in any organization and many careers. Adding a finance minor to any other business major, or even a non-business major, at Saint Louis University allows students to expand their skills in an in-demand field.
Entry-level finance jobs pay some of the highest salaries in business and provide for greater job mobility. Finance skills are beneficial in a range of job functions and become more critical as professionals advance their careers into management roles.
