New England-based Financial Professionals are facing increased pressure from clients and regulators during a volatile economy. To help them enhance their skill sets during challenging times, The American College, the nation's premier financial services educator, will bring its prestigious Masters' program to Boston this fall.
Residency I of the institution's prestigious Master of Science in Financial Services (MSFS) advanced degree will be held in Boston October 25-30, 2009. Professionals attending the program will experience and reap the benefits of live instruction from some of the industry's most influential thought leaders and academics.
"Bringing the MSFS program to Boston is an outstanding opportunity for financial advisors to examine issues involving compliance and ethics, important concepts in accounting principles, leadership and communications," said Larry Barton, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of The American College. "Combined with the convenience of distance learning, this MSFS residency experience offers American College students the irreplaceable benefit of faculty-peer interaction."
The MSFS program offers maximum flexibility for the busy professional. Financial planners, life insurance specialists, trust officers, CPAs, attorneys, and investment consultants are some of the professionals that would greatly benefit from this program.
Earning an MSFS provides financial practitioners with the necessary tools to analyze, plan, and implement business growth-oriented strategies.
This advanced degree program is mainly comprised of self-study coursework, along with two mandatory week-long residency programs. Professionals attending the Residency I course will find the program most beneficial if they complete two or three self-study courses beforehand. Typically, a second residency program is completed after students finish the self-study and Residency I coursework.
The Residency I program in Boston will consist of three courses, Security Analysis and Portfolio Management (GS 811), Financial Statement Analysis (GS 803), and Interpersonal Leadership Skills (GS 806). Interested participants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, submit the official transcripts from that institution, pay the required application fee, and formally apply to be admitted into the program. Applicants are selected based on academic and professional criteria.
