This course is designed to equip students with the knowledge and lifelong skills in personal financial management. Course topics include financial goal setting and budgeting; personal life cycle; personal income tax planning; debt and credit management; saving and investment; retirement planning; personal risk (life, health, disability and property insurance) management; and estate planning. In this course, students will learn to prepare their own personal financial plan; manage their resources; make sound personal financial decisions, gain control of their life financially and achieve financial independence.


The content of the course is very interesting and useful. However, the teaching style is pretty boring.

I took this course in Sem 2 (AY 2014/2015). The material is very heavy. There are a lot of numerical calculations and formulas. Comparing to similar course like Business Finance is a lot more structured.
