Mr. G visited the Urban Assembly School of Business for Young Women to get a lesson in business.

The online interactive program teaches students about budgeting, investing, financing and much more. It’s called the BankUnited Financial Scholars Program.

It’s all made possible with the partnership between BankUnited and Everfi.

The program turns a typically boring subject into a fun and entertaining one, letting students create a customized avatar and work through the curriculum at their own pace. And every user experiences something unique because with each click and every interaction, the program takes them down a different path.

The program will be in at least seven schools citywide over the next three years, with hopes of it eventually reaching every NYC student.
