About Us

Personal Finance @ Duke is a program designed to empower Duke Students and Alumni to make informed financial decisions by providing  them with  financial management knowledge and skills  necessary to navigate life events that affect everyday financial decisions, discuss issues surrounding personal finances, and plan for the future.

In addition to this website, The Office of Personal Finance offers seminars, and one-on-one counseling sessions.   Our objectives are to:

  • provide an easy to use, sleek and contemporary web based interactive educational resource for “18-28” year olds (Duke freshmen to young alumni) to address the educational gap facing this population concerning financial literacy and responsibility.

  • graduate more prepared students by providing financial life skills that go beyond pure academics. Change poor financial habits and form good financial habits.

  • decrease student loan borrowing and defaults.

  • teach students how to manage and budget their finances, plan for their financial future, and reach their financial goals. 

  • empower students by providing an online conduit to access/schedule individual counseling, sign up for live workshops, and provide a “safe place” to ask questions about financial literacy and responsibility.
