|Description:||Ongoing mergers and consolidations in the fast-paced financial services industry (financial services includes mutual funds, investment funds, banks, trust companies, financial planners, life insurance, and others) provides for exciting career paths and opportunities to individuals who ensure they start off with the right industry credentials. The financial services industry has benefited the most from productivity gains over the past 15 years due to a high rate of adoption of automation and technology enhancements – thus it is also the industry that stands to gain the most from highly trained and knowledgeable graduates.
In financial services, you need industry accreditation. Whether you pursue a career as a financial planner or as a sales associate, in today's financial services industry, credentials are necessary right from the beginning. George Brown’s Business Administration – Financial Management program is unique in Ontario – the first three semesters are common. During the last three semesters you will specialize in either Financial Services or Financial Planning.
