Financial Planning

The Personal Financial Planning track serves students interested in becoming a Personal Financial Planner. Financial Planners currently are among the highest compensated professionals. Our program is registered with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. Accordingly, students that complete this track automatically qualify to take the CFP Certification Examination. This is a comprehensive two-day exam leading to the CFP designation. This is now the leading designation in the financial services industry.

"Financial planners" focus their attention on the creation, protection, and distribution of wealth for their clients. They gather client data and work with individuals to establish financial goals, evaluate the client's current financial situation, develop financial planning recommendations and alternatives, and implement and monitor the on-going financial plan. Financial planners work with individuals and families. They also work with the owners of small businesses and executives in large corporations and non-profit organizations. In many cases financial planners are part of a team that consists of an accountant, attorney, and an insurance agent.
