For students without a background in basic finance, accounting or other business methods, several courses taught by UVA’s business and law faculty lay a foundation for the analytical thinking required, and language used, in the corporate world. They include Accounting and Corporate Finance, Corporate Strategy, and other classes focused on business skills.
Core business law courses include Corporations, Securities Regulation, Bankruptcy, Employment, Environmental Law, Income Tax, Antitrust and Intellectual Property.
Several of the core courses have a Law & Business version that incorporates finance and quantitative concepts. These typically include Corporations, Securities Regulation, Secured Transactions, Corporate Finance, and Mergers and Acquisitions, and are often taught by resident faculty members with graduate degrees in economics or finance. A student wishing to take the enhanced Law & Business version as an alternative to the standard core course must have had the introductory course in Accounting and Corporate Finance or have equivalent experience.
