A bachelor's degree in finance, accounting, economics, or business administration is often the minimum education needed for financial managers.

These academic programs help students develop analytical skills and learn financial analysis methods and software.Licenses, Certifications, and Registrations

The CFA Institute confers the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) certification to investment professionals who have at least a bachelor’s degree, 4 years of work experience, and pass three exams. The Association for Financial Professionals confers the Certified Treasury Professional credential to those who pass an exam and have a minimum of 2 years of relevant experience.Work Experience in a Related Occupation
