Certified Financial Planning Concentration

Olivet students who choose a concentration in certified financial planning manage actual financial assets and learn best practices in investment management.

Students have opportunities to earn the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) certificate that is recognized by the CFP Board of Standards.

CFP Exam

The CFP Board is a non-profit organization that fosters professional standards in personal finance planning through its setting and enforcement of the education, examination, experience, ethics and other requirements for CFP certifications. Olivet students who take the CFP exam are typically above a 70% pass rate compared to the 64% national pass rate. 

Investment Fund Consortium

The Student-Managed Investment Fund Consortium (SMIFC) at Olivet works to enhance learning and scholarship, provide a vehicle for student networking, and provide a permanent repository of relevant literature and recorded student experiences. In 2021, students managed over $801,000 in actual assets for the University.
