Program Description:

Develop financial plans, evaluating the appropriate principles, concepts, and frameworks for financial decision making. The Master of Science in Finance with a concentration in financial planning is a CFP Board-Registered Program in financial planning education and meets the specific criteria for educating individuals who wish to fulfill the education component for obtaining CFP® certification. After successfully completing the program, graduates must register for and complete FP 107: Financial Plan Development (a Kaplan University School of Professional and Continuing Education course), if they wish to meet all education requirements necessary to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination. Individuals who meet CFP Board's education requirement are eligible to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination.

*Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., owns the certification marks CFP®, Certified Financial Planner™, and federally registered CFP (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements. For detailed information related to obtaining CFP® certification, you may access the CFP Board website located at: www.cfp.net/. Although certain programs at Kaplan University are designed to prepare students to take various certification or licensing exams, the University cannot guarantee the student will pass those exams. In some cases, field experience and/or background checks may be necessary to be eligible to take or to successfully pass the exams. Students should research the requirements in the state in which they intend to seek employment.
