"The admission and registration process for the MSF program at CSUSB was extremely easy thanks to the help of CSUSB Finance and Accounting’s faculty and staff and College of Extended and Global Education. As a student in CSUSB’s MSF program, I have gained skills and confidence that help me discuss complex topics with my clients. For example, I am more confident sharing my outlook on the stock market and economy. After completing my first Fall Semester in 2020, I gained more in-depth analytical skills in economics, financial reporting, and investment analysis. These skills help me when clients ask me to analyze a particular stock, ETF, or mutual fund they want me to invest in their portfolios. Once I complete my degree and we are no longer in a pandemic, I plan to continue to build my book of business and do FINRA arbitration. After I complete my degree, I plan to take the CFA® exam."
