Beginning this fall, Spalding’s School of Business offers the new graduate concentration in Financial Planning within the MS in Business Communication (MSBC) program. Financial planners work one-on-one with their clients to develop strategies and plans for a secure future. This may include paying off debt, saving for retirement, meeting short-term financial targets, and long-term wealth management.
The Master in Business Communication in Financial Planning provides real-life financial planning skills that can be applied to any industry and working field. Dishant Pandya, Assistant Professor of Economics and Financial Planning, introduces this degree to bring financial planning education to every student, not just finance majors, such as full-time working professionals and those wanting to excel further in their careers.
Congratulations to Tracy Skaggs and Harley Lampton on receiving these prestigious senior awards! Both of these students are shining examples of compassionate, empathetic, and service-oriented leaders in our Spalding community.
