In memory of Dr. Sharon Garrison

Study Finance was founded by Dr. Sharon Garrison. Sharon spent over 36 years teaching, and truly loved what she did. She grew interested in electronic teaching in the mid-1990s and worked with many different platforms. She ultimately focused on Internet-based learning and successfully delivered distance classes for over 15 years.

In 1999, Sharon acted on an idea that she had and created StudyFinance.com. Her vision was to bring finance and general business concepts to a larger audience. Today, the material on StudyFinance.com is actively used in classrooms throughout the world.

Sadly, Dr Garrison unexpectedly passed away, and shutting down StudyFinance.com was considered. However, the realization that Sharon continues to teach all over the world through StudyFinance seems a fitting tribute to her memory. Therefore, it will remain online and continue to help future generations to learn financial concepts, study for a new career, and hopefully increase their earning potential and quality of life.

As from the beginning, all material presented on this website is considered intellectual property and can only be used for personal, educational, or non-commercial use.

Today, new content, online courses, and lessons are being made available to students worldwide. We are proud to build upon Sharon’s legacy and will continue to make financial education as easy, affordable, and available as possible to students across the world.

Sharon, you are missed.
