There is a resounding call for qualified personal financial planners, particularly as the Baby Boomer generation begins to retire. The Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Services trains students in the areas of estate planning, investments, insurance, tax, retirement planning and employee benefits. Students will learn a mix of business, accounting and finance principles and benefit from liberal arts courses to help them prepare for rewarding careers.
This program was developed with cooperation from major banks, brokerage houses, accounting firms, credit counseling organizations and insurance agencies and is intended to prepare students to sit for the Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) Board of Standards, Inc. and the Academy of Financial Services (3 years of full-time work experience, as outlined by the CFP® Board, required to sit for exam).
Graduates of this program are prepared to enter careers in banking, accounting, insurance or estate planning. Felony and drug background checks are conducted and may impact employment.
