Seneca program to become pathway to PFP designation

August 25, 2017

The Globe and Mail reports that effective next month, the Canadian Securities Institute plans to recognize Seneca College’s financial planning graduate certificate program as an education pathway to the CSI’s personal financial planner designation. “With this program and all my programs, the common theme is always partnership with the professional body to ensure the students are out the door job-ready,” says Karen Murkar, chair of Seneca’s School of Accounting and Financial Services. While graduates of the program will still need to pass the CSI exam and meet a three-year work experience requirement to earn the designation, the agreement means that they will not need to take additional CSI courses after graduation. Globe and Mail
