This study investigates whether completion of a statistics prerequisite improves student performance in financial management. Regression analysis indicates that students who satisfy the statistics requirement receive higher grades than otherwise identical students. Among students who complete the prerequisite, those with higher statistics grades perform better in finance. Students who delay taking finance more than a few months after completing statistics do not perform as well. However, completion of the statistics requirement does not affect the likelihood of student withdrawal from financial management.
