Applications are now being invited for individuals interested in joining the GEN online faculty in 2020-2022. All applicants must hold an FFI Advanced Certificate in either Family Business or Family Wealth Advising.
Built for busy professionals, FFI GEN delivers world-class curriculum, unparalleled access to faculty and thought leaders, and connections to a global network of specialists in the field. Want to take your skills to the next level? Enroll in Q2 today!
Q2 is a good time to enroll in the one of the advanced certificates, which are hybrids, requiring one online course (GEN 502) and an in-person course, either GEN 503 or GEN 504, which will be offered in Miami on October 23. If you have completed a CFBA or CFWA certificate, you are eligible to enroll in the advanced certificate program. Two scholarships are available thanks to Fitzpatrick & Francis Family Business Continuity Foundation Scholarship and the AlTouq Group.
