“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin
As a renowned author, scientist, and inventor, Mr. Franklin knew a thing or two about education and learning. In the spirit of the man who would one day grace the $100 bill, eMoney launched their University Program, helping develop the next generation of financial advisors, in 2015.
“Our University Program enables us to invest in the people who will shape the future of this industry,” said Matt Schulte, Head of Financial Planning at eMoney. Here’s how it works:
- Colleges and universities partner with eMoney to incorporate the software into their curriculum.
- Instructors are given free eMoney licenses, and many students create and present a financial plan using eMoney as part of their capstone requirement.
- Students are taught through classroom and online training to gain hands-on experience with the technology that the industry’s top advisors use every day.
Students also have the option to earn an official eMoney certification, which requires additional self-guided, online training, developed by Schulte’s team of in-house CFPs.
We have a feeling Benjamin Franklin would approve of the eMoney University Program: as he declared, “The doors of wisdom are never shut.”
