There is no application process to become a minor in computational finance. To declare a minor, a student must satisfy one of the following conditions:
Upon satisfying one of these two criteria, the student declares the minor by notifying
The required courses for the Computational Finance Minor are
21-241 | Matrices and Linear Transformations (or 21-242 Matrix Theory) |
21-259 | Calculus in Three Dimensions |
21-260 | Differential Equations |
21-270 | Introduction to Mathematical Finance |
21-370 | Discrete-Time Finance |
21-420 | Continuous-Time Finance |
21-256 Multivatraite Analysis may be substituted for 21-259 Calculus in Three Dimensions.
To avoid excessive double counting 21-270, 21-370 and 21-420 may not be used to satisfy any requirement other than the Computational Finance minor requirement.
Students minoring in Computational Finance are strongly encouraged to take one or two economics courses, e.g. 73-102, 73-103, 73-240.
