Accounting & Financial Management

The Accounting & Financial Management program offers Johns Hopkins Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and Peabody students a focused, quantitative minor that will prepare them more effectively for careers in small companies, major corporations, and consultancies as well as acceptance into graduate programs in accountancy and business.

The objective of the Minor in Accounting and Financial Management is to enable students in all disciplines to complement their major fields of study with academic training that will help them prepare for and compete within this expanding marketplace. The minor is not only relevant for students who plan to seek employment but critical for those who plan to attend graduate programs in accounting and business immediately after graduation. The Accounting and Financial Management Minor will help the CLE’s graduates prepare for career opportunities in several fields that have high salaries and are predicted to grow substantially.
