Abstract: Financial management skills are a critical and basic requirement for success across a number of professions. Thus, higher education should provide more engaging and inspiring activities to foster students' financial management skills. This study aims to propose a peer-learning teaching approach in a financial management course to assist students in discussing and learning in small groups as well as in engaging in games and tournaments to achieve their learning goals. The results show that the peer-learning group outperforms the lecture-based group in both final exam scores and semester grades. These findings also reveal that the peer-learning group reports a marginally significant higher score for learning motivation and a more positive attitude toward peer learning than the lecture-based group. Participants' qualitative feedback highlights that peer learning is the most helpful feature in enhancing students' overall learning.
