Help!! Almost ready to graduate...
#1
Hey Guys,

I'm only 9 credits away from graduating with a BSBA in General Management from Thomas Edison College, but I've run into a snag.

2 months ago, I took the Money and Banking DANTES in order to fulfill the Finance requirement for my degree and i failed by one point!

I must have one 3 hour course in 3 of the 4 catagories: Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing.

I passed:
1. Sales Management (Marketing)
2. Management Info. Systems (Management)

I need a Finance class to finish, and I'm not sure what to take. I don't have time to wait around to retake Money and Banking, because I'm supposed to graduate in March.

Here are the options i know of:
1. Security Analysis & Portfolio Management TECEP
2. Financial Institutions and Markets TECEP
3. International Finance TECEP

Anybody have experience with any of these exams? I'm looking to take one that doesn't require too much math.

Also, you think its possible to take Business Mathematics DANTES to fulfill the Finance requirement instead of taking the expensive TECEPS?

Thanks for the help!!!

Nate

Don't forget TESC accepts Penn Foster courses that are ACE accredited, you might want to check with an advisor to find out which PF courses would count toward your requirements.

I may not be following here, but what about Principles of Finance? That's considered an UL/CR course with Excelsior at least.

Did you gain all those credits through exam? If so do you have to take any "course" classes?
#5
Does anyone know what exams other than money and banking count towards the credits in the finance concentration? Or maybe somebody has a degree plan from excelsior finance degree
