Finance With CFP Emphasis

Return to: MS in Finance  

In this specialization, students prepare for a professional certification as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP). The coursework is aligned with the content in the competency-based CFP exam. Students gain hands-on practice for the CFP exam and complete a simulated exam as part of the capstone. The program explores best practices in financial analysis and decision-making; investment and insurance planning; and income tax, retirement, and estate planning. Students also develop knowledge of professional conduct and fiduciary responsibility as a CFP professional.
