Throughout the year there are many event opportunities to engage with our students.
If you’d like to present a topic to our students, please be invited to host a guest lecture during a Financial Planning class or a workshop outside of the classroom. Some possible topics include Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Social Media Marketing for Financial Planning, Technology in Financial Planning, etc.
The Financial Planning Mentor Program connects current Senior and Graduate students of the FHCE Financial Planning Program with Financial Planning Alumni. Mentees receive guidance and advice on their professional development, knowledge on industry insight and the opportunity to meet and network with those currently in the industry. Both Mentors and Mentees have the option to select between two membership types that best fit their wants and schedules. Applications are accepted for both Mentors and Mentees year round.
The University of Georgia recently approved a policy allowing undergraduate students to take 12 graduate credits that can count toward both their Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. Current plans are being developed for Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology, Biology, and Social Work, with more to come.
