Only one Finance 399, Supervised Study, may be applied to the concentration.  Students cannot get credit for both FNCE 101 and ECON 102; ECON 102 does not count towards the FNCE 101 requirement.  Students who have already taken ECON 102 must take a higher-level FNCE elective to count towards the FNCE 101 requirement.  For students concentrating in FNCE, however, this higher level elective used for the FNCE 101 requirement will not count as one of the four courses required for the FNCE concentration.

Global Analysis
(Second Concentration)
Wharton students may extend their understanding of the global economy by selecting a second concentration in Global Analysis.  This option may be pursued only as a second concentration.
To fulfill the concentration in Global Analysis, students must meet the following requirements:
1. Take at least one upper-level language course in the area of competency, such as French 211 (French for the Professions) and Spanish 208 (Business Spanish).  
2. Study abroad for at least one semester at a Penn-approved site.  Normally this will be in a country where the target language is used, but exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis.
3. Take three additional upper-level Wharton courses that focus primarily on international aspects of business.  None of these three courses may double-count towards the Global Environment requirement.
The GLAN concentration requires four courses, as do all concentrations.  One course is a language course, and the other three are Wharton classes.  Generally a second concentration course can only double-count in Business Breadth.  The unique aspect of this concentration is that one of the three Wharton classes can double-count in the
