What is Budget Challenge®?

Welcome to Budget Challenge®. Before continuing with this reading watch the short “What is Budget Challenge®?” video for an introduction to the program.

Like getting your driver’s license, in our “Road Test for Personal Finance®” to earn your license on the financial highway you will need to pass the written test and the “Road Test”.

The Budget Challenge® Road Test is a personal finance game that simulates the financial life of a working adult. During the 10-week game, you receive virtual paychecks and bills in real-time and are challenged to build and execute a budget while striving to achieve key financial goals. Each goal is represented by a trophy.

The written test portion of the program begins with a Pre-Simulation Knowledge Assessment and a quiz covering this “Getting Started” unit curriculum. Each week 1-2 units of curriculum with a quiz will be opened on the Dashboard with 12 curriculum units total.The simulation wraps up with a Post-Simulation Knowledge Assessment.At the end of the game, you are awarded a certificate based on your level of achievement.

The simulation is broken down into 3 phases:  Registration, During the Game, and Simulation End.
