Financial Planning Meets Therapy in New Grad Offering | ThinkAdvisor by Savita Iyer-Ahrestani


Most of the degree programs in financial planning are typically offered through university business schools, but at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, the Institute of Personal Financial Planning, where students can study financial planning both at the undergraduate and graduate level, is part of the College of Human Ecology.

This sets it apart from other educational institutions, according to Kristy Archuleta, an associate professor at the Institute, because “financial planning is really about people.” The College of Ecology is also the perfect place for the Institute given its strong focus both on individual human behavior and societal interaction in the family, the community and beyond, and how both of these shape people’s attitudes vis-à-vis money and financial planning.
