The Spears School of Business Center for Financial Health and Wellness is here to teach the basics of financial literacy, including budgeting, saving, and investing in the modern world.

Led by Amit Bansal, a lecturer in the Department of Finance, the center currently offers group sessions to student organizations and Oklahoma State University employees, as well as businesses and groups across the state. Bansal and the center also offer one-on-one coaching for those who need one-on-one help to achieve their financial goals.

“So many students, and even working adults, don’t know the basics of personal finance, and we hope to change that with the Center for Financial Health and Wellness,” Bansal said. “We want to give people a plan, teach them the power of compound interest and how investing just $10 a day can make them millionaires. Ultimately, we want to educate all Spears Business graduates, and the entire state of Oklahoma, about these simple but life-changing tools.

Since the center opened in January, Bansal has given several seminars to groups across the state, with more planned in the coming weeks. If you would like to schedule a session for your group or would like an individual session on your financial goals, please visit the Center for Financial Health and Wellness website.
