Description/Abstract

Personal financial management is important for success in all walks of life. As part of an effort to invest in a culture of financial literacy; The University of North Georgia has begun providing students with financial educational resources. However, my preliminary research revealed that most students do not use the resources provided. My proposal will address this gap by illustrating how the implementation of a financial curriculum in a core-course will be the most effective approach. This three-week curriculum will help students learn the basics of personal financial management such as budgeting, saving, debt-elimination, and several other relevant topics.
