I'm touching up my resume right now, but it's coming up a bit empty. I'm trying to decide what coursework I should list that would be appropriate for a banking internship. Problem is, I haven't taken any "real" finance courses yet, just general business stuff that's part of our core curriculum. Would appreciate feedback on which courses should go on the resume...

So far, I've taken:
Problem Solving using Computer Software (Word, Excel, & Powerpoint, basically)
Statistics with Regression
Principles of Financial Accounting
Principles of Managerial Accounting
Principles of Management
Principles of Marketing
Supply Chain and Operations Management
Principles of Entrepreneurship

Maybe I have more courses relevant to consulting internships at the moment?

calc, stats, financial accounting, macro/micro


I agree with the classes j-rad highlighted. Also, be prepared to talk about the classes you list in interviews.



Just say "Financial Accounting", etc. They will get it (there aren't upper-level marketing courses just called "Marketing" because they are more specific).


The "principles" courses aren't worth mentioning because they are the same low-level, intro courses everyone in b-school takes. Calc and stats also are standard, but better to mention. You have taken just the standard stuff, so you don't have anything distinctive to mention. If you can, take a more advanced course in math or analysis or something that sets you apart from the tens of thousands of business majors.


this section should be as minimal as possible - try to give more substance to work experience and extra curriculars. they should have a good idea of the courses you've taken based on your major(s) and minor(s), listed in your education section
