If you're interested in a career that combines working with money and working with people, Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business Diploma - Financial Services specialty diploma is a great choice. 


About this Degree

Financial services is more than banking - it's loans, mortgages, investment products, financial planning and advising, money management, insurance, risk management and more. Essentially it's helping people with their financial health from the cradle to the grave. With so many services and an aging workforce, it's also an industry with exceptional potential for career growth and mentorship.

You'll develop specialized knowledge and skills in residential mortgages, bank operations, financial products and services, loans and credit, personal financial planning, tax fundamentals, advanced investment products and more.

Practical exercises and hands-on activities give you a chance to apply what you learn. A unique seminar course on strategic advising in your final semester gives you a chance to integrate theory and practice in a simulated retail banking environment. It's a chance to polish your skills before entering the workforce.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic works with the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI) to ensure students are meeting actual marketplace needs. As part of your course requirements, you must register with the CSI and purchase specified textbooks that will be used for Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Investment Funds in Canada preparation course. Saskatchewan Polytechnic will guide you through your CSI registration process and textbook purchase.

Graduating with a Business Diploma - Financial Services specialty diploma qualifies you to apply for advanced standing into degree programs at the University of Regina's Paul J. Hill School of Business, Royal Roads University, University of Lethbridge or online degree programs at Athabasca University. Graduates of this specialty may also receive transfer credits towards the Certified in Management designation through the Canadian Institute of Management and the Certified Logistics Professional designation through the Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation.
