The Graduate Certificate in Philanthropic Advisory (GCPV) programme aims to equip students with specialised knowledge in philanthropic advisory. Students will learn the business context of philanthropy, fundraising, legacy, and succession planning in philanthropic advising. Graduates in this programme will have acquired specialist knowledge and skills to define and solve, in a holistic manner, problems related to philanthropic advisory.
The programme will also be suitable for those currently in the wealth management industry and wish to pursue specialised knowledge in philanthropic advisory. Most family offices are set up for wealth preservation and legacy building, and hence the growing field in philanthropy advisory will be the critical area of skillsets that wealth managers should have.
The programme will also be applicable to working adults who have work experience in personal banking, relationship management, and wealth management. It also caters to the growing field of family office advisors.
Each of the courses in the GCPV programme is 5 credit units (cu) and can be taken on a stand-alone basis. Upon successful completion of 15 cu of coursework, these courses can be stacked to a Graduate Certificate in Philanthropic Advisory.
Students have to maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.5 in their coursework as part of the fulfilment of the graduate certificate programme.
