What is Financial Literacy?
Financial literacy is understanding how money works: how you make, manage, and invest your money wisely. Knowing the basics of managing your money will help you become self-sufficient and achieve financial stability.
The goal of FLY@ECU is to provide East Central University students with the information and tools to become financially savvy and successful.
