Texas Tech University, based in Lubbock, TX, is now the second university approved by the Retirement Income Industry Association to teach the Retirement Management Analyst curriculum in preparation for the RMA examination.
Boston University Center for Professional Education, a RIIA university partner since May 2010, currently offers a distance learning program to potential candidates.
According to Francois Gadenne, RIIA’s Chairman and Executive Director, the new Texas Tech Retirement Management Certification Seminar is a one-week, intensive program which will include lectures, lab assignments and final exam, and will take place in the new Charles Schwab Technology Complex on the Texas Tech campus. Students who successfully pass the final exam receive a certification from the university and are fully prepared to take the RMA exam to earn the RMA designation.
“The RMA certification is the only one across the industry to focus specifically on providing retirement income planning and management centered around structuring a plan built on the solid foundation of first build a floor and then expose the portfolio to upside potential,” explained Gadenne.
