Programs will differ from school to school, but along with learning the basics of finance, many programs will equip students with the necessary skills required for degree-level study. These may include critically-reflective thinking, reading, and writing skills; report writing; innovative solutions and creative approaches to problems; retrieval and analysis; and data search.

Students who pursue this program often develop enhanced interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a variety of team roles. The program is also beneficial for those who continue on to earn a finance degree because they will likely have a better foundation than some of the other students.
