Adding on a finance minor to any other business major, or even non-business major, should be valuable for students. Entry level finance jobs pay some of the highest salaries in the business field and provide for greater job mobility. In addition, having some finance courses is a valuable tool to have when taking tests for, and applying to, graduate schools for an MBA degree. In terms of additional requirements, it does not impose too much cost depending on what other prerequisite courses a student may have already taken. Thus, in a cost-benefit analysis, it may be a good thing to consider adding a minor in finance.
