Deakin's Master of Financial Planning (MFP) is a professionally oriented course specifically designed to meet the education needs of the financial planning industry. The MFP is aimed at those aspiring to join the financial planning industry as well as those currently employed in the industry. The MFP seeks to build the financial planning abilities, skills and knowledge of the individual student. Students will be required to collect, analyse and synthesise financial planning information. Students will then use their skills to prepare financial planning solutions and to effectively communicate these solutions to the client. The MFP emphasises the professional responsibilities of the financial planner both in an ethical and in a compliance sense. The MFP is built on an extensive body of financial planning knowledge and culminates in the preparation of a comprehensive Statement of Advice for a client.
