CFP to MBA
There is a relationship between the Certificate in Financial Planning program at CBU and the CBU MBA program which has existed for the past ten years.
The three courses – FPLN 681, 682 and 683 – may be earned through the successful completion of those courses if earned from the CBU Certificate in Financial Planning program. In order to receive graduate credit for those courses, you must apply to the Director of the MBA program and be counseled on the attendant procedures and costs of transferring the CFP coursework into the MBA program for graduate credit. In most cases, the student who completes the transfer of the hours earned in the CFP to the MBA will have fulfilled the MBA requirement of earning their nine hours of elective concentration credit, resulting in them being able to complete the Orientation and eight core MBA courses to complete the MBA program in a reduced time period and at a reduced cost.
If you have successfully passed the Certified Financial Planning examination for licensure, the MBA Director will also waive the entrance requirement of the GMAT or GRE examination which will expedite your acceptance into the program at a reduced cost of admission. Partial completion of the examination will not be accepted.
