Derek Lawson

Derek Lawson, who earned a master's in personal financial planning as a K-State global campus student, chose to pursue a Ph.D. in personal financial planning because it gives him the opportunity to work directly with faculty. A former assistant financial planner, he hopes to conduct research on married couples' money issues, solving deep rooted client issues about finance and reducing physiological stressors associated with client meetings. His passion for financial planning comes from witnessing many extended family members experience hardships with money that could be traced back to lack of financial literacy.
