Charles Schwab Wealth Management Workshop

Financial planners and wealth managers help individuals, families, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses meet their financial goals. They analyze the financial health of clients, solve financial problems, and establish strategies for meeting goals. They serve as advisors, counselors, and consultants. Employment opportunities in this area are growing twice that of the national average of other opportunities.

The Charles Schwab Wealth Management Workshop prepares students for careers in financial planning and wealth management. Specifically, it prepares students to take the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) certification, which is the key gateway to such a career. Workshop members also receive professional development opportunities, including guidance and training with Kelley School of Business alumni and other professionals in the field. These professionals are in industries where the Workshop training is in high demand such as banks, insurance companies, brokerage house, and financial planning firms.
