The first two courses in the RMI minor are the financial core: Financial Accounting (ACC 101) and Introduction to Finance (FIN 200). These two courses can be double-counted toward a student’s major, and do not have to be replaced in the minor. Students are responsible for completing the prerequisites to these courses outside the minor. The RMI minor requires students to complete four RMI courses. The one exception to this is for students majoring in Actuarial Science, described below. These courses cannot be double-counted in the student’s major.
