In the past, several students have studied abroad for a semester or a year while successfully completing the undergraduate certificate in finance (UCF). This requires planning ahead, including taking additional courses in your sophomore year.
You should consult with the UCF program representative about courses you wish to take for UCF credit. We approve courses taken elsewhere only if they are of comparable standards and taken at institutions of comparable quality.
Finance certificate students may be interested in the Economics Exchange Program with Universitá Bocconi in Milan, Italy. The Exchange gives two Princeton students the opportunity to study at one of the foremost economics and finance universities in Europe. Previous study of Italian is desirable, but not required. Bocconi offers a wide range of courses in English (more than 90 each semester), and an intensive crash course in Italian for three weeks before the beginning of each semester.
