Excerpts from AAFM's Official Letter...

Dear AACSB Officials

As US President of the American Academy of Financial Management, ™ I am writing you to personally address an issue that has been voted on by our Board.

Our Board of Standards Members from the US, EU and Asia has voted to recognize all AACSB Business Schools that offer finance degrees as appropriate training for the AAFM Financial Certification MFP Master Financial Professional ™ .

This means that any finance major who graduates from an AACSB accredited business school would be eligible for the MFP Master Financial Professional ™ Board Certification and Designation provided that the candidate meets the experience, GPA, ethics, good standing and continuing education guidelines of the American Academy.

AAFM has members in 100 countries and is expanding around the world as the fastest growing Global Financial and Wealth Management Training and Certification Organization. With our exclusive relationships with organizations worldwide, we are set to have membership of over 50,000 by the end of 2004. Moreover, AAFM has just become the first financial certification training to be officially sanctioned and recognized by the Chinese Government. This is something that no other financial organization has done.

Our Board of Standards contains PhDs and Financial Executives from around the world with our AAFM Headquarters in Hong Kong this year.
