Personal Financial Planning

Personal financial planners help families and individuals understand financial products, how they work, and the role of the family in making financial decisions, such as saving for college or retirement.

Kansas State University’s Institute of Financial Planning offers three programs in personal financial planning through distance education including a master’s degree, a certificate program, and a Ph.D. program.

The K-State programs prepare students for careers in industry, banking, retirement planning, estate planning, personnel benefits, real estate, insurance, investments and consumer affairs. Graduates often find rewarding work in corporations or independent firms.
