Educational Opportunity

altThe California Lutheran University School of Management offers a variety of options for financial  planning professionals seeking a graduate degree. The MBA in Financial Planning provides the technical and business administration skills needed to pursue a leadership position or start and sustain your own practice. The new MS in Financial Planning refines your specialized financial planning acumen and client-relationship skills for advancement in the financial planning profession.

Internship Program

The MBA in Financial Planning at California Lutheran University (CLU) is setting up an Internship Program for career changers in our area. While CLU can give them the technical skills to be good planners and pass the CFP, only you can help them learn those practical skills that they will need to be great planners.

The Internship Program will be run through the FPA Ventura County and will be administered by Mark Edwards, MBA.
