The Center for Financial Services at DePaul University is a center of excellence for the Greater Midwest financial services community that delivers to students and practitioners the academic and extra-curricular programs that fulfill industry talent requirements and address the practical and theoretical interests of industry professionals.
As a hub of national and international financial services activity and as a multicultural and multilingual city, Chicago is uniquely positioned, both in terms of the need and resources, to house a world-class Center for Financial Services. This Center offers continuous and integrated training to the global financial services industry.
The Center for Financial Services hosts annual conferences and programs with leading financial institutions, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (through an annual Risk Conference), PNC (through an annual Executive Forum speaker series) and LPL Financial (with a recurring Wealth Management Conference). In addition, the Center hosts numerous other programs, with topics covering sustainable business, socially responsible investing and truth in accounting. Complementing these conferences is a graduate degree program in Wealth Management — the only of its kind and designed for industry professionals committed to the growing field.
