“In keeping with our commitment to excellence, Immaculata University is very excited about partnering with the CFP Board to offer this new degree program,” said program coordinator Dr. Elizabeth Faunce. “This new B.S. in Financial Planning program will not only prepare our students for a career in the financial planning industry but will also satisfy the education requirements for the CFP certification.”
CFP Board is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit with a mission to benefit the public by granting, upholding, and promoting the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) certification. Those who earn the certification are distinguishing themselves among their peers by meeting CFP Board’s education, examination, experience, and ethics requirements. Students completing the financial planning program at Immaculata University will have met the education requirement for CFP Certification Examination administered by CFP Board.
CFP Board currently oversees more than 300 programs at more than 200 institutions. CFP Board-Registered Programs are financial planning education programs at the college or university level that meet specific criteria for educating individuals who wish to fulfill the education component for obtaining CFP certification.
“CFP Board is pleased to approve the program at Immaculata University as a CFP Board-Registered Program,” said Douglas S. King, chair of CFP Board’s Board of Directors. “As student interest in financial planning as a career continues to grow, we anticipate that Immaculata University’s program will contribute significantly to the number of qualified candidates seeking to attain the CFP certification, the standard of excellence for competent and ethical financial planning.”
