We are very pleased to introduce our new graduate certificate programs in finance that allow busy professionals to acquire essential financial skills and expertise, but in less time and at a much lower cost than a full degree program.
BOSTON (PRWEB) September 05, 2017
New England College of Business (NECB) today announced the launch of two new graduate certificate programs in Financial Management and Financial Planning. Designed for executives seeking to sharpen their skills and advance their careers in finance without committing to a full degree program, the new six-month-long certificate programs focus on practical concepts and expertise needed to provide students with a competitive edge for executive level jobs and promotions.
NECB’s Graduate Certificate in Financial Management utilizes the school’s award-winning fully online learning platform to provide students with hands-on coursework led by faculty with real-world experience. The program benefits professionals pursuing a job in financial management, including senior-level positions such as CFO, Director or VP of Finance.
NECB’s Graduate Certificate in Financial Planning is designed for individuals who wish to pursue professional careers in financial advising and financial planning. It offers a skills-oriented financial education focused on the areas of investment, retirement planning, and risk and insurance management.
Both programs consist of four classes taken over a six-month period and can be applied towards the full Master of Science in Finance (MSF) degree program at NECB. Designed to provide professionals with a comprehensive real-world perspective and knowledge of financial models, markets and investment strategies, the MSF degree consists of ten courses and can be completed within 15 months of continuous enrollment.
“We are very pleased to introduce our new graduate certificate programs in finance that allow busy professionals to acquire essential financial skills and expertise, but in less time and at a much lower cost than a full degree program,” said Dr. Ned Gandevani, Graduate Finance Program Chair at NECB. “With the job market becoming increasingly more competitive, companies are now searching for employees with a higher education level and a more robust professional skillset. NECB’s new graduate-level certificates offer a practical, cost-effective and convenient approach to expanding their business skills and advancing their careers.”
