Many people are interested in entering the finance industry, but lack the necessary postsecondary education on their resume to land a job. Obtaining a degree may be able to increase the chances of an individual finding a position in the business field.
Recently, the New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) announced that it has formed a partnership with the Center for Financial Training Atlantic and Central States (CFTACS) to allow individuals the opportunity to earn a degree. Graduates of CFTACS can enroll in the program and receive a 25% discount in tuition to attend NECB following completion.
We are honored to be working with NECB, said Mike Meakem, Center for Financial Training president and chief executive officer. “We share a common history of educating working adults in the banking industry. NECB will help our advanced financial services diploma graduates gain the knowledge and training they need to earn a college degree, and ultimately advance their career and succeed in the banking and financial services industry.”
Approximately 90% of high-wage jobs created within the next decade will require some postsecondary education, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
