Topics include savings, loans, credit cards, mortgages, taxes, residential decisions, basic investments, credit score management, responsible purchasing, living within one's means, philanthropy, and much more. This course--like nearly all of Wells' courses--is open to students from any major, and teaches skills valuable to any career.
In addition, faculty and staff in the Sullivan Center are further developing the Personal Financial Management offerings through workshops open to the broader community. These sessions will address topics such as "Budgeting and Financial Planning in Troubled Times" and "Helping your Family Afford College or Retirement."
Wells has a formal agreement with Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. This allows Wells students graduating with a B.A. who have taken the required business foundation courses to apply for a one-year M.B.A. program at Clarkson and complete the program within one academic year. The Clarkson M.B.A. program is intensive and rigorous with an integrated curriculum that focuses on the global environment, technology in the work place, teamwork, leadership, and integrity.
