BFLP Symposium (3)

The College Financial Literacy Symposium

Sponsored by The Babson Financial Literacy Project (BFLP)
Thursday May 27 & Thursday June 3, 2021
1:00-4:00 pm ET
Virtual via Zoom

Cost: $499 per person (includes free access for your students and staff to the BFLP online financial knowledge platform). Additional attendees from each college cost $299/person (please contact us for the discount code).

Being financially savvy is not an option; it’s a must in today’s complex world. Yet, the lack of financial knowledge and poor financial habits are widespread problems among college students, largely due to limited financial education.

The BFLP helps young adults acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for lifelong financial prosperity. The College Financial Literacy Symposium is for any college administrator, faculty, and staff interested in empowering young adults to take charge of their financial futures.

Join us for two three-hour sessions on how to build a financial literacy program for your college that uses the BFLP’s comprehensive, unbiased case studies and supporting materials, including our online knowledge platform. Participants will leave the Symposium more financially savvy, inspired, and capable of championing an interactive, financial literacy program for your students, recent grads, and employees.
