The personal financial planning student team earned first place in the 2015 Financial Planning Challenge. The competition included eight teams and was held September 24-28, 2015, in Boston, Massachusetts.
The student team consisted of seniors Mariah Bausch, Cole Foster and Hannah Rice, advised by Ann Coulson, PhD, CFP®, assistant professor in family studies and human services in the College of Human Ecology. Warm congratulations to the team!
Kansas State University is the only university to qualify for the competition finals every year since the competition began in 2001. The 2016 Financial Planning Association’s Annual Conference will be held mid-September in Baltimore, Maryland, and K-State expects to once again field a strong team. The challenge is sponsored by the Financial Planning Association, Ameriprise Financial and the Certified Financial Planners Board.
