Phad 497: Personal Finance


This course will be a continuation of the basic personal finance concepts learned in Phad 493. Hands-on exercises and projects throughout the semester will give students the tools to evaluate how their money is currently being spent, set short-term and long-term financial goals, reduce their tax liability, adequately insure themselves and their assets, make sound investment choices, prepare for retirement, navigate the stock market, evaluate mutual funds, strategize for major purchases, evaluate and select a financial planner, manage money during major life changes, and prevent theft of their identity. Financial planners will also speak with students in some of these content areas.
