Sound financial management is an integral part of career planning and development, equipping students to be future-ready and to face career changes and transitions with confidence.

Most financial literacy programmes focus only on the hard skills, tools and techniques associated with personal finance management. CFG's Financial Wellbeing programme provides students with training in essential financial planning skills and goes a step further by addressing the mental and emotional aspects of money management.

With the rate of disruption in the working world continuing to accelerate, it is essential that students build the financial and emotional resilience to make decisions that enable them to thrive, even amidst challenging times. Through the programme, students will gain a deep understanding of how emotions and mindsets impact their decision-making, and develop the financial know-how as well as positive habits and practices related to financial decision-making. 

Look forward to developing these crucial skills:

  • Financial literacy and financial planning
  • Psychological resilience in money management
  • Pathways to saving and investing sustainably
  • Managing your own investment portfolio
  • Financial empowerment to achieve your goals
The Financial Wellbeing programme is developed by the NUS Centre for Future-ready Graduates in partnership with PlayMoolah, an organisation that enables the next generation to use money as a tool for a flourishing life.
