For Firms, Friends and Alumni

As one of the top Financial Planning programs in the country, UGA students are a unique source of talent and potential for Financial Planning firms across the globe. The Financial Planning major prepares our students to become client-focused professional financial planners who help individuals and families create, manage and transfer wealth efficiently.

There are many ways to support our students and our program – learn more below on how to partner with the future of Financial Planning.

  • Recruit Our Students

    By recruiting our students, they are being given the opportunity to not only use their financial planning skills and expertise they have learned through UGA, but they are also able to grow within the field.

    You can post your job and internship opportunities on UGA Handshake. Please reach out to Dr. Mary Bell Carlson, Financial Planning Brand Marketing Representative for further information or questions.

  • Engage with Our Program

    We offer an array of events for you to be able to engage with our students. We encourage guest lecturers to come speak and share their knowledge. This allows students to get first-hand insights into the field of Financial Planning.

    We also invite all alumni, firms, and friends to come and celebrate with us every year at the annual UGA Financial Planning Banquet. Details can be found here: https://www.fcs.uga.edu/financial-planning/banquet
