Master of Science in Financial Planning

Program Details

The online Master of Science in Financial Planning focuses on the “art and science” of financial planning, allowing students to customize courses and earn an accredited degree that positions them for success in their chosen career paths.  Students may choose between two program tracks to fit their needs, the degree plus eligibility for the CFP Exam track or the degree only track.  Either track offers great flexibility to help nontraditional students complete their degrees, along with communication and interdisciplinary courses which help them connect with clients, expand their client base, increase income, and advance in their careers.
