Understanding and managing personal finances are key to one’s future financial success. Financial literacy is essential in making sound financial decisions. From taking this course, students will be able to analyze their personal financial decisions, evaluate the costs and benefits of their decisions, recognize their rights and responsibilities as consumers, and apply the knowledge learned to making sound financial decisions, both short-term and long-term.

This course is combining two existing 2-credit courses (BUSN 131-Personal Finance I and BUSN 132-Personal Finance II) into a 4-credit course.

BUSN 131 will be deleted at the end of the 2019-2020 academic term.

BUSN 132 will be deleted after the fall 2020 term, to allow students who took BUSN 131 the opportunity to take BUSN 132 during the summer 2020 and fall 2020 terms.
