Personal Finance Lab, is an online financial literacy platform that enables students to apply their knowledge of money through real life simulation games.

Their objectives are to increase net worth, improve credit scores, maintain a savings balance and pay their bills on time. Students can also learn about investing through the real life Stock Game. They can purchase and sell shares on various stock exchanges around the world (all market data is current and available in real time), conduct research about listed companies, explore careers in investing and more.

Personal Finance Lab trades under the umbrella of Stock-Trak Inc., founded in 1990. The Budgeting and Stock Games, used by more than 900,000 students last year alone, are available nationally.
