University Partnership Opportunities

At Kaplan, we help people transform their lives through education. Our university partnerships benefit from our top-of-the-line instructor and student materials. We empower students to gain a competitive edge through education, while providing resources to start and advance their careers. We collaborate with universities to develop and supplement curriculums in order to help students prepare for licensing and advanced designation exams in the investment management, financial planning, and securities industries.

Would you like to help your students bridge the gap between the classroom and their career? Kaplan’s university partnership programs allow schools to add value to their current curricula and help meet the demands of students preparing for their professional lives.


Partner with Kaplan and give your students a competitive edge in any of the following areas:

With many Baby Boomers heading toward retirement, the need for personal financial planners is growing every day. Recognized as the highest standard in personal financial planning, earning the CFP® mark will give professionals tremendous opportunities in their financial careers.

From live and online programs to exam review and materials partnership options, Kaplan has a CFP Board-registered program that can be tailored to your university’s needs.

The CFA Program, administered by CFA Institute, sets the global standard for investment industry knowledge and ethical behavior. The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) credential is the globally recognized mark of distinction and benchmark for measuring the expertise, experience, and ethics of serious investment professionals. Kaplan collaborates with universities to develop and supplement curricula, as well as help students prepare for the CFA exam. From offering Kaplan’s course on your campus, leveraging our courses in a blended program, or simply utilizing our concise textbooks in existing classes, we can provide the insights and resources needed to develop a successful CFA exam review program at your university.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA®) revamped the way individuals will begin their career in the securities industry, which opens up an opportunity for universities to assist their students. As of October 2018, all new representative-level applicants are required to pass a general knowledge exam—the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam—in order to become registered to sell securities. With the new exam structure, individuals no longer need to be sponsored by a firm in order to sit for this entry-level exam. Give your students the best chance to become registered and enter the workforce after graduation by introducing them to key topics and terminology included in the SIE exam.

Provide a unique learning opportunity for your students by incorporating insurance licensing material into your curriculum. The insurance industry is in need of knowledgeable agents with the ability to provide excellent service to clients, and our solutions can help you fill this gap. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for the industry is projected to grow at a rate faster than average, and students may not recognize this as a profitable career. Introduce key insurance topics and terminology to help prepare your students for a career in the insurance industry.
