The Personal Financial Planning Program hosted their 2nd annual Professional Connection Event on November 30, 2017. The purpose of this event was to connect potential employers and current Kansas State PFP students to provide internship, career and professional development opportunities.
The event was a great success! There were 15 firms in attendance and approximately 50 students in various stages of their curriculum. The firms present were very diverse and showcased the vast career paths and opportunities available for a Financial Planning Graduate. Several of the firms held face-to-face interviews immediately after the event and showed wonderful support for our program. Excess donations from the firms added to the Personal Financial Planning Excellence fund, which provides travel funds and scholarships to our students.
The Personal Financial Planning Program at K-State is consistently rated as one of the best financial planning programs in the nation. Our faculty goes above and beyond the call of duty for our students at all levels. They are also world-renowned for their cutting edge research that directly impacts the profession as we know it. Through coursework that emphasized both the personal and analytical sides of financial planning, our graduates are well prepared to hit the ground running in this industry. Our students did an amazing job of showcasing the talent, enthusiasm and dedication in the Personal Financial Planning Program.
We plan to continue this event on an annual basis.
