About Us

Thrive is a destination for students interested in learning all they can about personal financial management, as well as those eager to impart their own financial expertise and advice to their peers.

The center supports all Northeastern students in the pursuit and achievement of financial competency and, ultimately, financial independence. Its programming imparts the knowledge and skills needed to make informed, savvy decisions about personal finances, both short-term and long-term, across the spectrum (investing, debt management, saving, credit cards, student loans, living on a budget, home/car purchases, retirement and more).

Thrive is unique among collegiate financial literacy centers in its structure and delivery, with students as the main architects – they play key leadership roles in the research, development, marketing and delivery of all programming and in the operations of the center itself. In true Northeastern tradition, the center is grounded in both innovation and student leadership.
