How Are Students Really Managing Finances?
Results from a Multiyear Behavioral Assessment

Wednesday, October 10

Join us for Inceptia’s first multi-year research project, in which we worked with over 60,000 students from across the country to gain insight into their personal finance successes and challenges. From credit, to student loans, to alternative banking, the assessment was designed to gauge a full range of financial capability markers. The results can help all financial education advocates keep their finger on the pulse of what students know, what they think they know, and areas in which we can help bridge the gap.
