Abstract

Financial management is very important to secure a good quality of life. People must plan for long-term investments for their retirement and children's education. They must decide on short-term savings and borrowing for a vacation, a down payment for a house and a car loan. Therefore, to make a good financial decision, we must have a proper financial planning and basically we need to start at a young age. Due to this, a study on personal financial behavior among students at Universiti Teknologi MARA Melaka was undertaken.
