Math Minor with Finance Major or no minor?

I was looking to go into toward corporate finance or investment analysis and was debating whether or not to go with the math minor or not. I switch my major with civil engineering so I already have taken calc 1, 2, 3 and its like 2 extra classes to get it. Do companies even look at minors or is it a waste or time?


*I switch my major from civil engineering

Update 2:

Ive also taken finite math. so that's has probability in it

    A math minor has legitimate value and will be viewed favorably. It might encourage a firm to consider you for a quantitative analysis role.

    Stats classes would likely add the most value in the investment world.

    A Finance Major/Math Minor is a stronger combination than just a Finance Major but it's a small edge and after 2-3 years in the work arena it wlll be almost meaningless.

    This is just what I think: Minors show your hobby, so yes a waste of time.

    A finance major would never need a math minor for anything.

    And civil engineering has nothing to do with finance.
