This program is specifically designed for individuals who wish to pursue an exciting career in the continuously expanding financial services industry. Continued growth in the financial services sector provides exciting employment opportunities for qualified individuals. The skills required of financial services graduates have changed dramatically in recent years. Graduates must be appropriately licensed and accredited by successfully completing a number of industry courses. Centennial has designed the program to include these courses so that graduates may present employers with meaningful industry credentials. Students will take courses that lead to eligibility for securities and insurance licensing.
