- Portfolio Management
- Financial Institutions and Capital Markets
- Tax Planning
- Risk Management
- Pension and Benefits Administration
- International Finance
- Shareholder Value Management
Working professionals enjoy the program's flexible scheduling because it allows them to better integrate work, family life and education. The MSFS is offered in a variety of online formats, including eight-week and 15-week semesters.
*Saint Joseph's University does not certify individuals - CFP¨ certification is granted solely by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. to individuals who, in addition to completing an educational requirement such as this CFP Board-Registered Program, have met ethics, experience and examination requirements.
