Wealth That Lasts

Private Wealth Management Education Designed Exclusively for Affluent Individuals and Families


The relationships you build with wealth advisors are among the most important relationships you may ever have. However, without a clear understanding of your strategy and how each member of your advisory team—e.g., financial advisor, estate planning attorney, accountant, etc.—must work in harmony to effectively achieve your specific goals, your wealth may not be reaching its full potential.

In this course specifically designed for high net worth individuals and families, you will develop a personal wealth strategy, learn how to communicate this plan effectively to your advisors, identify ways to measure and manage their progress, and more.

Our top-tier instructors bring over 17 years of experience teaching this course in a way that guides students with varying experience—even those with little or no prior knowledge about finance will benefit. You can expect a hands-on, interactive learning experience with thought-provoking discussions that will help you customize a wealth management plan that balances with your goals and personal circumstances. Rest assured, this is unbiased information from a trusted university and no one will attempt to sell you anything.
