Similar to the finance minor, the financial planning minor helps students develop the skills to address the challenges facing investors while developing an understanding of today's financial markets. Saint Joseph's financial planning curriculum is a CFP¨ registered* program, one of a select few housed in an AACSB-accredited business school.
Of the many resources available to personal financial planning minors at Saint Joseph's, perhaps the most notable is the Wall Street Trading Room, located in Mandeville Hall. The room provides access to real time financial and investment data, analytical tools and trading simulations. Thus, classes are able to work more effectively, with hands-on learning and enhancements to curriculum. The trading simulations provide for real-life experiences, and the continuous access to financial data/software creates an integrated learning environment.
Graduates of the financial planning minor program move on to professional positions with banking institutions, finance, insurance companies, and investment companies.
