The Personal Financial Management Certification Program

The Personal Financial Management Certification program was developed by Inceptia in collaboration with leading academicians from East Carolina University’s (ECU) Financial Wellness Initiative, in the College of Business, and leaders in financial education.

The innovative, in-depth and self-paced personal finance certification program was created to equip higher education professionals, peer counselors, and college administrators with the knowledge, skills, resources and confidence to effectively guide and teach college students to navigate the complex and often tricky world of personal finance. It is our vision that future generations have the knowledge and capability to thrive financially throughout their lives. We believe that by arming our frontline colleagues in higher education with the essential financial principles that every college student needs, we will make great strides in having a more financially capable society.

Since piloting the program in May of 2011, we have had an overwhelming response to the certification program.
