Financial Planning Certificate

The financial planning certificate helps prepare students interested in a career in personal financial planning for clients, including those who plan to seek the CFP (Certified Financial Planner) designation. Students take courses in taxation, risk management, investments, and estate planning in preparation of guiding their clients in setting financial goals, understanding investment markets, and protecting and managing their assets. This certificate is ideally suited for students with a background in accounting.

All graduate courses in the Graham School of Business offer a "hyperflex" attendance policy for your convenience. Students may attend classes either in-person or remotely, using two-way video conferencing technology in our Zoom-enabled classrooms.
