Trust and Wealth Management

Trust and Wealth Management addresses the needs of the wealthy by managing their property, developing and implementing tax planning, financial planning, and estate planning strategies. Our students are eligible to sit for the Certified Financial Planner CFP® certification examinations immediately upon graduation. In addition to managing and creating wealth, trust is also very much about invaluable, long-term relationships. The Trust Pre-Law Major is ideal for students interested in the areas of estate planning, tax planning, business planning, or in a career as a corporate attorney.
