In order to prepare for your future, you will need to find a way that you can manage your finances to achieve your life goals. Financial Planning does this, and the financial planning process is important in developing a plan that is tailored to your own unique circumstances. Having a detailed financial plan provides a strategy to help you make critical financial decisions in all aspects of life, and following that plan affords you the best possible chances of success in achieving your life goals and long-term financial security.
Given the complexities and financial uncertainty that the world faces on a daily basis, financial planning professionals are in high demand and a qualification in Financial Planning offers a career path filled with numerous rewarding opportunities. The Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning offered by the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, is accredited by the Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI), and is designed to admit students or professionals to the qualifying Professional Competency Examination.
