Financial Services Bachelor Degree

BS/BBA Financial Services

Investing in Your Future

A Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Services can open the door to a profitable and interesting career in banking, accounting, insurance or estate planning. Our curriculum was developed to meet the Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) Board of Standards, Inc. and the Academy of Financial Services. The program outcomes were created in association with input from major banks, brokerage houses, accounting firms, credit counseling organizations and insurance agencies. The program emphasizes personal financial planning, with students eligible to take the CFP Certification Exam (3 years of full-time work experience, as outlined by the CFP® Board, required to sit for exam) upon graduation.

Personal financial planning is a growing and lucrative field, especially as aging Baby Boomers enter their peak earning years and require financial planning to manage their wealth for retirement. To adequately equip students for career mobility within the financial field, our program combines business, accounting and finance courses with essential liberal arts courses. Students will also acquire knowledge, skills and competency in estate planning, investments, insurance, tax, retirement planning and employee benefits as part of this specialized degree program.  Felony and drug background checks are conducted and may impact employment.
