CFP Board-Columbia University Teaching Program
“The speakers were very interesting, and I felt I learned a lot from them sharing their years of experience with us. It definitely jump-started a teaching career for someone with little experience in academia. The class was also an excellent networking opportunity. Highly recommended.”

–Lillian Padula-Coscia, CFP®
