Deakin Business School CFP® Certification Program
The Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) has partnered with Deakin Business School, to offer financial planners a Master of Financial Planning degree with CFP® certification.
“This is a significant win for financial planners, who will now be able to graduate with both an academic qualification and the highest global professional designation in financial planning, which is recognised in 27 countries around the world,” FPA chief executive officer, Dante De Gori, said.
Certification units 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been mapped against the Masters units at Deakin Business School, while the certification capstone will be offered as an elective, which also counts towards the Master of Financial Planning.
“At a time when all financial planners are grappling with the need to satisfy new education standards and demonstrate the highest level of professionalism and competence with their clients, this partnership demonstrates our commitment to working closely with the profession,” Peter Carey, head of the department of accounting at Deakin Business School, said.
