"As a growing advisory firm, we are frequently on the look out for great new talent to add to our firm. SUNY Alfred is the first place we begin our search. Two of our CFP® professionals came from the Alfred program, including one of our partners. Most recently, we added an intern from Alfred and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. What I find in all of these individuals is a level of preparedness and capability that is truly unique. The program produces high quality, confident professionals who are ready to contribute from the minute they join the workforce." -Michael Heburn, COO, Level Financial Advisors
