A certificate program in finance will be of particular interest to financial professionals seeking to update their skills or acquire a new expertise, as well as to graduate students in the School of Business who wish to leverage their advanced degrees by stacking a complementary credential in their skills inventory.
The Certificate in Professional Portfolio Management prepares individuals for rewarding career progression in the fields of securities analysis and investment management.
The program of study develops the ethical framework and analytical skills to interpret the economic and behavioral landscape, evaluate the benefits and risks of derivatives and alternative investments on asset allocation, and manage investment portfolios for high net worth and institutional clients. In developing these competencies, the Professional Portfolio Management certificate incorporates the Level III curriculum of the Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) Program administered by CFA Institute, where NJCU is an affiliated university. Students are encouraged to pursue the globally recognized CFA credential along with their certificate.
Courses taken for this certificate program can be applied to the M.S. in Finance degree should you decide to further your education.
