Master of Science Degree in Personal Financial Planning
MS in Personal Financial Planning
The Master of Science Degree in Personal Financial Planning is designed for individuals who are interested in pursuing the CFP® Certification while also earning a graduate degree. This one-of-a-kind program utilizes our industry-leading study materials, but in an entirely new way. Rather than exam preparation, the MS curriculum focuses on practical application. MS students learn via group discussions, writing assignments, and case study projects. This hands-on approach provides students with a deeper understanding of the subject matter and unique real-world insights.
The program begins with the core disciplines of financial planning before exploring advanced topic areas that delve deeper into these topics and more. Upon completion of the five core courses and a case study course, students are eligible to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination. In only four more courses you can earn a fully accredited Master of Science Degree in Personal Financial Planning, the highest level of financial education possible.
