Delaware State University to Offer New Program in Financial Planning

Delaware State University, the historically Black educational institution in Dover, has announced that it will be offering a new financial planning minor program in the department of accounting, economics, and finance in the  College of Business.

Upon completion of the minor degree program, students will be prepared to take the certification examination of the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards.

Donna Covington, dean of the College of Business at Delaware State University believes the new program will serve to increase diversity in the financial planning industry. The new minor “will help meet this need while serving the community, both in terms of training graduates to become board-registered financial planners and also serving Kent County residents through financial literacy workshops and pro bono financial planning,” Dean Covington said
