The Missing Curriculum Link: Personal Financial Planning
Neidermeyer, Adolph A.; Neidermeyer, Presha E.
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n4 p79-82 Apr 2010

Unfortunately, the results of a recent analysis of curriculum offerings in Personal Financial Planning indicate that we, as faculty, have not fully accepted this responsibility. Only three out of the 131 four-year institutions reviewed have a required Personal Financial Planning course in their curriculums. Quite frankly, we're permitting launching a generation of students who are unprepared to manage both their own and potentially others' financial affairs. With that shortfall of a course offering as a backdrop, we suggest the following content for a required Personal Financial Planning course for all students majoring in Business Administration.
