Program Overview

Concordia’s graduate certificate in finance teaches you to master the key aspects of the industry to become a competitive job candidate once you’ve completed the program. This certificate is designed for students who are interested in pursuing middle and upper management, brokerage, insurance practice, and running their own business. In fact, many students who complete this program go on to take the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam. The best part is we offer this certificate in person, online, or as a combination of the two to make earning your certificate convenient and personalized. 

What to Expect

Concordia’s graduate certificate in finance prepares students to master key aspects currently applied in the financial field including real estate investment, securities analysis, risk management, and other essential topics. This program also offers students advanced insights into managing assets such as stocks, bonds, derivatives, and mutual funds.

Whether you pursue an online certificate in finance or choose to learn in person—or a combination of both—when you complete the program, you will be well-equipped to move forward in your career. You will understand financial spreadsheets, make informed investment choices, know the parameters of law and fraud within business finance, and many other essentials. In addition, you will be able to confidently take the CFA exam if you choose to do so.
