ODU Partners with Financial Planning Association of Central Ohio

The Financial Planning Association (FPA) of Central Ohio has become an Educational Partnership Program Member with ODU.

Jun 9, 2020

Ohio Dominican University (ODU) has partnered with the Financial Planning Association (FPA) of Central Ohio to offer its members an opportunity to complete a wide range of business degree and certificate programs at a discounted rate.

ODU’s Educational Partnership Program gives corporations, government agencies and nonprofit organizations the ability to provide employees and members with continuing education options at the undergraduate and graduate level to help their organization foster innovation, identify and keep top talent, and provide employees with the opportunity to enhance their professional credentials.

Benefits of becoming an Educational Partnership Program member include:
· Waived application fee to ODU;
· Ability to take as many as three classes tuition-free (up to 25% savings);
· Flexible start dates; and
· Option to attend class on ODU’s campus during the evening, online, or possibly on-site at an employer’s or organization’s location.

“We are eager to partner with the Financial Planning Association of Central Ohio to provide their talented associates with an opportunity to further enhance their professional qualifications,” said ODU President Robert Gervasi, Ph.D. “Our various business programs, and the outstanding faculty who lead them, will help to equip FPA members with additional tools, knowledge and skills they can utilize as they work with Central Ohioans to identify, plan for, and achieve their financial goals.”

“When I was approached with this opportunity to partner, it was a no-brainer,” said FPA of Central Ohio Director of Career Development Kevin Clark, CFP, CIMA. “Ohio Dominican and its faculty have outstanding reputations in our community for their work in education. Meanwhile, FPA of Central Ohio’s members consistently tell us as Board representatives that they value advanced education and see our organization as a key source for accessing it. That’s especially true with our younger members and our NexGen community of aspiring planners and career changers, who I’ve focused my efforts to serve the past two years. A partnership to provide these members with access to ODU’s educational opportunities is a natural fit, and one we’re very excited about as a Board."
