Personal Financial Planning
An interest area
Everyone needs to improve their financial literacy because everyone will face personal financial decisions throughout their lives, from student loans to mortgages to retirement.
In the Personal Financial Planning program at Bryant, you will learn basic financial concepts, such as the time value of money and how to interpret interest rates. You will also examine personal loans, including credit cards, auto loans, and home mortgages - as well as stocks and bonds, money market and mutual funds, and how your individual savings role impacts society.
If you plan to pursue financial planning as a career, you will further benefit from taking the Securities Brokerage course, which prepares you for the Series 7 exam – the license required of financial planners.
Future careers, post-grad opportunities
Where will you go with your Personal Financial Planning knowledge? You will be poised for portfolio management, banking, investments, financial services, or financial advising, among other careers. You will also be well prepared for graduate studies.
