Students Need Your Help
Did you know 43 states don’t require a financial literacy course to graduate? The main issue is that states don’t provide funding for financial literacy curriculum, but that’s where you come in. You can help by sponsoring financial literacy education for the schools in your area.
8 Reasons You’ll Love Partnering with Stukent
1. You’ll grow your customer base.
Sponsoring a Stukent product is an easy way to get your name in front of future customers. A study by Forrester Research shows that recommendations from friends and family are one of the top three reasons for choosing a financial institution. Plus, roughly 50% of 15-year-olds don’t have a bank account, making high school a critical time to not only teach about personal finance, but also introduce future customers to your company.
2. Mimic Personal Finance helps your future customers become financially literate.
When our communities are financially literate, everyone benefits: families have increased financial stability, young adults get started on the right track with money management and debt, and financial institutions see fewer late payments and loan defaults, plus a higher use of financial products.
3. Sponsorship shows you care about your customers and community.

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
How Mimic Personal Finance Works
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.
Students can explore other sources of income such as starting a business in class, taking a second job, or investing in the stock market.
Just like the real world is full of the unknown, students experience unexpected events that influence their finances within the class.
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.
Teachers LOVE Mimic Personal Finance
And So Do Credit Unions
Does Mimic Personal Finance Really Work?
