The Certificate in Finance prepares individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field for entry into careers in financial advisory, corporate finance, money management, and commercial and investment banking. It is designed for career conversion (current Cal State LA bachelor's degree students should do a minor in finance). Starting fall 2017, the certificate will require 15 semester units (five courses) - equivalent to a minor (see worksheet below). Students may begin their courses now and apply for the certificate in the last semester of completion.
No program application is necessary. Take the required courses through Open University by filling out the Open University Registration Form, which is available in the College of Professional and Global Education located in the University Student Union, Room 105 or online . To receive your certificate, follow the procedures stated on the University Graduation office webpage and click on certificates. (Note: submit the completed application along with your unofficial transcripts to the Staff Support Center, Simpson Tower F517 for approval.)
