Greenwood Village, Colo. (Sept. 3, 2003) -- In an effort to enhance the qualifications of financial planning professionals, the College for Financial Planning announced Tuesday that it has expanded its Masters programs to include three separate degrees.

The Masters degrees are Personal Financial Planning, Finance, and Financial Analysis.

All courses are offered in a blend of instructor-led distance learning formats.

According to the college, financial planner income has rocketed over the past few years, from an average annual net of $75,000 in 1998 to $120,000 in 2002, according to the 2002 Survey of Trends of Certified Financial Planner ® certificate holders.

“With these increases in income have come requests for additional programs, as professionals in accounting, investments, banking, insurance, and financial counseling seek to enhance their skills and provide an even broader range of services to their clients,” said John Sears, President of the College for Financial Planning.

The College for Financial Planning is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
