Our business has positioned MasterCard at the center of commerce – and we accept the responsibility that comes with this position in the global marketplace. At MasterCard, we take responsibility for creating new opportunities for people to thoughtfully and knowledgeably participate in the global economy.
We strongly believe that no one should be shut out of the global economy because of a lack of financial knowledge. Personal financal management is for anyone.
That's why we've created a range of tailored financial education programs in several markets around the world–from smart money management for young adults; to security for cardholders and their banks; to budget management for the unbanked and underbanked. Each of these programs is designed to be a catalyst for financial inclusion, and are delivered in an interactive, personal and engaging way—whether it's through an online portal, new mobile technology or hands-on in the community.
With years of experience behind us, we already know: there is no one-size-fits-all solution to financial education.
No one should have to live in fear of their finances.
A secure financial future begins with one positive step.
We are committed to financial education around the world — that's why we've created a range of financial education programs tailored to consumers in several global markets.
