Students taking the financial planning concentration meet the educational requirements to sit for the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) exam. These students are also poised to pursue the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. 

Supplement your finance education with extracurriculars

Each spring we endeavor to take students to some type of investing conference. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the CBU Investment Group, a student-managed investment fund, where students are challenged to create a portfolio that produces returns and matches CBU core values.
