Certification Program in Financial Planning

CLU offers a Certificate-only program for candidates wishing to work toward CFP® Certification in a graduate studies framework. The certificate program is designed exclusively for professionals who have an MBA or other business-related professional degree, e.g., JD, CPA or those with significant experience in the financial planning field.

In order to be eligible for the Certificate program, students must have a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution (or equivalent coursework). Admission criteria are streamlined for those students wishing to pursue the Certicate program.

The Certificate program consists of eight courses. Successful completion of the courses is required to earn a Certificate in Financial Planning and to be eligible to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination.

The MBA-Financial Planning degree program helps finance-related professionals keep pace with growing market demand and stay ahead in an increasingly complex career field.
