  • Undergraduate coursework that includes: Calculus, Econometrics (or equivalent), Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory, Intermediate Microeconomic Theory, and Mathematical Economics. (Students missing some of these courses can be admitted conditionally.)
  • Given the Finance focus of the dual-degree program, undergraduate coursework in Finance and Accounting is also desirable.
