Career Outcomes

Through their experiences and studies in the minor program, students enhance their resumes and strengthen their applications to compete in job markets at the highest levels and the best graduate schools. Our students receive a wealth of resources, and the Bendheim Center for Finance’s career services are unmatched. 


Current Princeton sophomore students may apply for the program through June 1. The Minor is open to all majors, with the only limitations being that students may only enroll in a maximum of two minors and may not pursue both a Minor in Finance and a Minor in Quantitative Economics.

If finance is an area of interest for you, we recommend that you apply for the program to ensure your spot. You are able to drop the minor at any time down the road. You can learn more about the requirements and pre-requisites here and apply for the Minor
