Learn Certified Financial Planning at a small school you'll love

Certified Financial Planning

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Personal Financial Advisors earn a median annual salary of $87,850, with projected job growth of 17% through 2030.

Financial Advisors and Planners are accredited by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board), which ensures that advisors and planners meet strict educational, professional and ethical requirements. While accreditation under the CFP Board is not always required to work as a Financial Advisor or Planner, it vastly improves professional opportunities for those holding the certification, either by itself or along with other certifications, such as Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).

Misericordia University, in a partnership with LCM Consortium and Rize Education, offer the certified financial planning specialization to provide students with expertise in high-growth areas in which employers are searching for talent.
