We are excited to announce that Minnesota State University, Mankato have agreed to the University Partner Program with the FPA. Students who complete a Finance degree with an emphasis in Financial Planning and Insurance qualify to sit for the CFP® exam upon graduation.
The Career Development Committee has pursued opportunities for the students at Minnesota State University, Mankato and the FPA to work more closely together. The committee has visited the finance club on numerous occasions in the past to highlight opportunities that the FPA can provide students as they consider pursuing a career in financial planning. Students from Minnesota State, have attended the FPA symposium and chapter meetings on scholarship and participated in the FPA Career Day. Going, forward, the University Partner Program should serve to strengthen that connection with Minnesota State University and its finance students. Students will have the option to become student members of the FPA at a discounted rate, and will be able to enjoy the many benefits of becoming an FPA member. If you have ideas or are interested in helping students from Minnesota State University, Mankato become more involved with the MN chapter, please contact the Career Development Committee.
