The mission of Scholars of Finance is to help shape our students to lead lives of integrity, stewardship, and servant leadership.

We believe that leaders who are able to introspect and connect with their values are more successful and effective. Our proprietary six-week Leadership Development Program (LDP) uses student-led learning to help members examine and develop their personal mission and values.

Ultimately, students will learn about who they are, decide what kind of leader they want to become and what values they want to live by, and how they can grow to become that leader and uphold their values with character.

Six weeks of student-led learning and discussion for members to:

Examine
and develop personal mission and values.

ideas with peers.

necessary habits & disciplines to become principled financial leaders.
