Innovative MBA Program Announced at IWU

DeVoe School of Business

An innovative degree program - one of a handful of its kind in the country - has just been launched by Indiana Wesleyan University ("IWU") as a result of a partnership with the Ron Blue Institute. The Master of Business Administration in Personal Financial Planning (MBA-PFP) allows Certified Financial Planners to earn an MBA by completing just seven or eight additional courses. Those who are not Certified Financial Planners can complete the program and meet the educational eligibility requirements to sit for the CFP exam.

"The MBA in PFP provides graduate-level core MBA training along with preparation courses that meet the educational requirements of the CFP exam," says Dr. Jeffrey Boyce, Assistant Dean of IWU's DeVoe School of Business. "More importantly, this program incorporates a biblical perspective on the use of money into the program and seeks to prepare financial planners to advise their clients on the use of their financial resources in a manner that builds the kingdom of God."

This Master's program has been structured with the adult student in mind. Classes meet one night per week or online, with cohort groups providing mutual support. Instructors combine academic credentials with professional expertise, creating a learning environment that allows the students to design solutions and strategies for complex business problems and opportunities within the financial planning industry.

"The MBA PFP program is one of less than a dozen MBA-based financial planning programs in the country, and the only one that integrates biblical principles," Boyce reiterates. "It is a strong addition to the degrees available through the DeVoe School of Business and is part of IWU's tradition and mission of preparing students in character, scholarship and leadership."
