I didn't do the best job in a few of my undergraduate finance classes, so I'm hoping to ace a class before applying to schools in the fall to show that I do know what I'm doing, among other reasons. I found a certificate program that had what I'm looking for, but alas, started in the fall and is not taking at large applicants right now, so now I'm researching taking a summer class instead.
So my questions is, when books or Q&A's w/ admissions say take another class, are they looking for only grad or continuing education classes, or do senior level undergraduate classes count? My employer is encouraging me to take classes for continuing education sake, so I'm trying to kill two birds, and while I live in a large metropolitan area, I'm limited by fewer classes being offered in the summer, wanting to take a class from a reputable program, and the fact that many grad programs do not take at-large students. Any suggestions for where I should be looking?
Undergrad classes definitely are okay. And you don't need to just think about finance programs. Depending on your undergrad transcript, something else quantitative like a calculus class may serve you well. Don't worry about the reputation of the program as much as how well the class fits what you're trying to do/demonstrate.
Thanks for the advice, I'm now looking at taking an undergrad class. Assuming either would work with my job requirement, is it better to take a general calculus/statistical math class, or retake the equivalent financial class again in order ace it? Basically, what is better to demonstrate, that I can do math and calculus, or that I'm not totally inept at finance?
