Financial Planning magazine named the program in the SDSU College of Business Administration as one of 10 “Stand Out Financial Planning Schools” in the country in its November 2011 issue.
Founded in 1980, SDSU’s financial planning program was one of the first of its kind in the United States.
The program trains students to understand and analyze:
- Investment strategies
- Risk management
- Tax implications
- Estate planning
Students can earn a certificate, bachelor’s degree or master’s degree in financial planning, and SDSU’s program is one of only a handful accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Dedication to students
“Our exceptional faculty’s dedication to providing our students with a comprehensive and innovative financial planning academic experience is the prime factor SDSU is cited as having one of the most distinguished programs in the U.S., ” said Michael Cunningham, dean of SDSU’s College of Business Administration.
“We are honored that Financial Planning has recognized the college’s commitment to educational excellence.”
