Professional Financial Services
What brought you to Fanshawe?
Personal Financial Planning was an area of growth, and is still growing. Up until recently personal financial planning was at the mercy of tips from stock brokers and some uncoordinated tax tips . I was looking for a program that would help me learn and put together various aspects of personal finance in a meaningful way. Financial Planning program at Fanshawe gives you more than just a Diploma.

Everyday at Fanshawe was enjoyable, I was new to Canada and had to learn a lots of basics. I would google every word that came out of people's mouths; RRSP, GIC, Timbits! The professors were exceptionally good, with vast industry experience, knowledge and had inclination to impart their wisdom. I spent hundreds of hours in the library and the computer labs.
