Illinois State University’s Institute for Financial Planning and Analysis has partnered with the Central Illinois Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals.

The Society’s University Partners Program has an established partnership with Illinois State University’s Department of Finance, Insurance, and Law in the College of Business. This enhanced partnership will facilitate links between finance students and those who work in financial services.

“Partnering with this group allows our students the opportunity to work with some of the strongest Financial Planning Industry professionals in Central Illinois,” said Professor of Finance and Director of the Institute Edgar Norton.  “It will offer them experiences with real-world, accomplished financial planners and help them be better prepared as they move into the workforce.”

Opportunities that will be available to students include internships, mentoring opportunities with professionals, and job shadowing financial service professionals. This new partnership aligns with the Institute’s mission to promote and develop financial advising experiences for students, and to reach out to business partners working in financial services.
