No it does not matter. You only need the minimum requirements to become a Certified Financial Planner which includes a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration, or you can specialize in financial management or accounting. The more experience you have being a Certified Financial Planner the higher your salary will be.Experience isn’t required for the entry-level positions.
