Financial Planning - Minor
The minor in Financial Planning prepares students for leadership roles in a rapidly growing profession. Financial planners advise their clients about financial decisions, including investments, insurance, taxes, retirement, estate planning, and budgeting.

The minor satisfies the educational requirements of the CFP Board of Standards that would allow the student to sit for the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM (CFP®) exam. Professionals who have completed this education program are in very high demand in the financial sector.
