My Degrees and Designations

Master of Business Administration (MBA)

A Master of Business Administration is a graduate-level degree that covers a wide range of business fields, such as finance, marketing, accounting and management.

For the ninth time in the past ten years, the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business ranks first in The Economist’s world-wide ranking of full-time MBA programs.

Certified Financial Planner (CFP®)

The CFP® certification is one of the top generalist marks financial planners can earn. The CFP® marks identify those individuals who have completed the CFP Board’s rigorous program covering a broad array of financial planning subject areas and trains certificants in the discipline of financial planning.

Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®)

The ChFC® designation has been a mark of excellence for almost thirty years and currently requires nine college-level courses, the most of any financial planning credential. Average study time to earn the ChFC® exceeds 450 hours. Required courses cover extensive education and application training in financial planning, income taxation, investments, and estate and retirement planning. Additional electives are chosen from such topics as macroeconomics, financial decisions for retirement, and executive compensation. ChFC® designees must meet experience requirements and adhere to continuing education and ethical standards. The credential is awarded by The American College, a non-profit educator founded in 1927 and the highest level of academic accreditation.
