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

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

“So many college 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 about the power of compounding
interest and how investing just $10 a day can make them a millionaire. Eventually,
we want to educate every Spears Business graduate, and the entire state of Oklahoma,
about these simple but life-changing tools.”

Since the center opened in January, Bansal has given multiple seminars to groups across
the state, with more planned in the coming weeks. If you are interested in hosting
a session for your group or would benefit from a one-on-one session about your financial
goals, please visit the Center for Financial Health and Wellness website.
