Thank you for your interest in the financial planning graduate certificate program. Oregon State University is not accepting students for this program at this time.


Careers

Earning this graduate certificate will help you meet the educational requirement related to the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) certification, which is the pre-eminent designation for anyone seeking a career in individual financial planning.

The demand for trained financial planning professionals is rising locally and nationally due to the aging workforce and the United States population in general. The CFP Board reports that the financial planning profession is growing at 41 percent to address the need for Americans to pull their finances together and plan for the future. The Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates a 30 percent job growth for personal financial advisors over the next 10 years.
