How Stukent Personal Finance Works

Stukent’s Personal Finance simulation gives students relevant, hands-on experience with important financial literacy concepts. This simulation doesn’t just gamify personal finance principles, it real-lifes them, giving each student a differentiated learning experience.

THE STUKENT PERSONAL FINANCE SIMULATION

Students receive a salary every Monday, which they allocate to living expenses, bills, and major purchases such as real estate and healthcare. Bills are due every Friday.

Additionally, students can use their discretionary funds to purchase in-class perks, such as desk locations, bathroom passes, and flashcards for exams.

But students need to be prudent with their money! At the end of the simulation, students need to have invested enough in their grades to earn a good score.

Mimic Personal Finance: A Revolutionary Approach to Personal Finance

 

Mimic Personal Finance uses decision-theory learning to teach students the basic principles of financial literacy in a simple and powerful way. 

Mimic Personal Finance is the ONLY simulation that lets students:

  • Practice decision-based learning
  • Make real-world financial choices
  • Go beyond theory to application
  • Experience real, in-class consequences

What Mimic Personal Finance Teaches:

Banking

​Students start with budgets to track and basic bills to pay. Academic performance in class determines if they earn raises to their salaries or lose income.

Assets & Liabilities

​Students develop credit scores based on in-class behavior and simulation decisions. The scores allow them to take on liabilities and purchase assets like cars and housing.

Income Growth

Students can explore other sources of income such as starting a business in class, taking a second job, or investing in the stock market.

Life Happens

Just like the real world is full of the unknown, students experience unexpected events that influence their finances within the class.

Buying Grades

By applying budgeting skills, students regularly purchase their Mimic Personal Finance score that can then be factored in as part of their total grade in class.

Why Stukent?

Stukent offers the best solution for those looking for the most relevant, real-world, and turn-key solutions for teaching financial literacy. 

Stukent’s mission is to help educators help students help the world. 

They fulfill their mission, in part, by always looking to partner with more banks and credit unions to help sponsor these solutions so every student gets access to a better financial future.
