Personal Finance Course Receives Quality Matters Certification

The online version of Landmark College’s Personal Finance course has earned the Quality Matters (QM) Certification Mark following a rigorous review process.

The QM Certification Mark is the internationally recognized symbol of online and blended course design quality and represents Landmark College’s ongoing commitment to creating learning environments that provide learners with a clear pathway to success. The course is now listed on the QM directory of certified courses.

Personal Finance is the second LC Online course to pass QM’s review. This three-credit course provides students with a foundation upon which to develop life-long personal financial management skills including financial planning, budgeting, balancing a checkbook, taxes, cash management, insurance, and investments.

Denise Jaffe, director of online course development and innovation at LC, said Associate Professor of Business Studies Jeanette Landin was instrumental in the College’s receipt of the QM credential for this course.

The QM Official Review provided independent validation of the learner-focused course design found in Personal Finance. Reviews are conducted by QM-Certified Reviewers and use the Quality Matters Rubric and associated Standards, which are based on research and best practices. A course earns the QM Certification Mark once it meets QM Rubric Standards at the 85% threshold or better and meets all Essential Standards.
