Preparing the Next Generation
In one of the largest and most advanced partnerships to date, FPA of Greater Memphis spearheaded the development of a CFP® Certificate Program at the University of Memphis in 2015. This unique opportunity resulted in a collaborative effort between our local FPA Board and professors at the University. The program was launched in 2016 and offers future generations the opportunity to learn the Financial Planning profession.
The Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate offers an undergraduate Certificate Program that meets specific criteria for students who wish to fulfill the education component for obtaining CFP® certification. This financial planning education program is registered with Certified Financial Planning Board of Standards, Inc. to verify that the student has completed coursework covering all 72 topics tested on the CFP® Certification Exam. Taught by experienced and well renowned faculty, the students who successfully complete this program are deemed to have met the Education requirement set forth by the Financial Planning Board and are eligible to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination.
