The MSFS degree program consists of advanced training on a wide variety of financial topics including pension and estate planning, financial planning, executive compensation, business and personal tax planning, security analysis and portfolio management, and financial statement analysis. Graduates must successfully complete 36 credits of individual and residency study and pass 12 rigorous examinations. The American College’s Richard D. Irwin Graduate School has awarded an average of only seventy-six degrees each year since its inception in 1977.
“I’m thrilled to have earned the well-respected MSFS degree. I’m always looking for ways to increase my knowledge so I can provide the smartest and timely advice to my clients. Last year I co-authored Plan of Action: Strategies to Help You Build and Preserve, which was another wonderful learning experience. And now it’s exciting to see my clients refer to the chapter I wrote on understanding your insurance portfolio and treating policies as assets, as we strategize to develop the optimal plan for them,” explained Slater.
