From simple tasks like making a household budget or balancing a checkbook, to evaluating life insurance and selecting an investment vehicle to fund a comfortable retirement, people have to learn about personal finance in order to be successful overseers of their incomes and assets. Students especially are faced with an array of purchasing, savings and credit choices, necessitating the need for solid financial information in order to make smart financial decisions for the future.

Accounting instructor John Cronin will host this five-week program that will address these decisions and choices. Guest lectures will be provided by executives from SunTrust Bank and other USC Upstate business professors. Topics will be especially timely for students, but the classes are also open to the general public, alumni, faculty and staff. This event qualifies for USC Upstate Continuing Education credits for personal development. Topics that will be covered in-depth include:
