Financial Management for Entrepreneurs Curriculum

For questions and to provide feedback, please contact info@nacce.com

Welcome to the Intuit Educator Resource Hub which houses the Financial Management for Entrepreneurs (FMFE) curriculum, developed by a collaboration between NACCE, Intuit, and numerous NACCE members who are subject matter experts in the field of entrepreneurship and finance. We hope you find it to be a valuable asset to your program!

The curriculum can be used in several ways:

  1. As a framework for an entire course in small business financial management. The recommended timeframe for each module is one to two weeks.

  2. As a plug-in to an existing course. For faculty teaching a general entrepreneurship course, or non-business course looking to provide students with practical ways to apply financial concepts to other academic disciplines, there are many topics and experiential activities built into this course that can serve as a plug-in for another course. *Most popular option* 

  3. As a workshop for a college or small business center to offer. Within this curriculum, you will find content to create numerous workshops depending upon how you choose to use the curriculum that has been developed.
