Financial education is booming across the country, and students at a handful of schools in New York and Los Angeles have been getting a lot of attention from their professors.
Here are the best colleges for financial students, according to a recent survey from financial education research firm Radius.
The financial education sector is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 9.3% this year, up from 7.3%, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
It is expected in 2021 to be worth $7.2 trillion, according the Wall Street Journal.
While there are some schools that do better than others, there are a number of schools that offer the best financial education.
These include the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, which is rated No. 1 in its state for its financial education offerings, and the New York University School of Law in New Jersey.
It also has a strong reputation for high test scores, according Toi Wong, vice president of student development and partnerships at the National College Board.
In a 2017 report, Wong noted that financial education has been “highly integrated” into the lives of its students, who have been “significantly influenced by their financial education,” and that their peers are paying attention to their academic progress.
“The more that financial institutions are investing in financial education and investing in research and technology, the better chance they have of creating the world-class education that graduates expect,” she said.
According to the Wall St. Journal, students who attend the William and Milly School of Business in Williamsville, Virginia have higher earnings and graduation rates than students who study at Harvard University, and are more likely to achieve financial success than those who attend schools like Brown, Harvard Business School, Stanford and Columbia.
While financial education is becoming more prevalent in the public schools, there is still a large gap between the financial and non-financial educational opportunities for students.
The median family income in the United States is $65,000, which means that for every $1,000 a student earns, he or she spends $3,400 on education.
That means that financial students pay more for their education than non-credit students.
“While financial institutions can’t take all the credit, there’s an incentive to educate students as much as possible.
And if students are not being fully prepared for the rigors of their education, they will likely be unable to earn as much money as they could,” said John E. Brown, senior vice president and general manager of financial education at Radius.
Brown said that the best schools for financial instruction are those that are designed to teach students in a way that allows them to learn as much information as possible while at the same time providing the support to make those learning experiences memorable.
“This is something that is going to require a whole lot of education,” he said.
“But if students want to be prepared for their future, they should be getting a good understanding of what they need to know, and how to prepare themselves for that learning environment.”
