The Finance concentration at the University of Pennsylvania develops the skills necessary to work at a high level of expertise in all areas of finance, including: asset management and financial markets; investment banking in a global context; the financial aspects of venture capital, mergers and acquisitions; and global management consulting.


The Finance department at the University of Pennsylvania consistently offers a very wide range of upper-level courses and new ones are introduced regularly. Each of the tracks recommended below provides a specialization in a different area of finance. Students may wish to pursue one or more of these tracks or, instead, design a more individualized path.

Students wishing to concentrate in Finance should also note the following policies:

  • Concentration courses cannot be taken pass/fail.
  • Only a maximum of one (1) CU in Global Modular classes, ASPs courses or FNCE 399: Supervised Independent Study in Finance may be applied to the concentration.
  • Students cannot obtain credit for both FNCE 101 and ECON 102. Students who have already taken ECON 102 must take a higher-level FNCE elective in lieu of the FNCE 101 requirement. This elective must be in addition to the other four c.u. required for the finance concentration.
