STUDY ABROAD: FINANCE MAJORS
All students wishing to study abroad must first meet with an advisor in the Office of International Programs (OIP).
If accepted into the study abroad program and approved by Richard Keeley, Associate Dean of the Undergraduate Program (Fulton 360), the student should then contact either the Department Chairperson, Ronnie Sadka (Fulton 560C) or Elliott Smith (Fulton 437) for elective course approvals.
The Finance Department requires that Financial Accounting (ACCT1021) and Basic Finance (MFIN1021) be taken at Boston College as pre-requisites for any finance elective prior to going abroad. All required finance concentration core courses must be taken in CSOM only.
All approvals should be sought either by email or in person, with all supporting documentation (course description, detailed syllabus, etc.).
ALL APPROVALS SHOULD BE OBTAINED PRIOR TO GOING ABROAD.
However, in the rare circumstance where course selection is only available upon arrival at the university, you must email the course syllabus to either the Department Chairman, Ronnie Sadka, or Elliott Smith before enrolling in the course in order to obtain approval. If the course is deemed a suitable finance elective, the Finance Department will send a confirming email to you approving the course for credit.
No approvals will be granted after the course has been completed.
