This study analyzed the effects of the NIE (Newspaper in Education) learning method on the financial education of college students, focusing on how financial literacy impacts financial management behavior. For this purpose, college students enrolled in finance courses were divided into two groups: the experimental group, which participated in the NIE program, and the control group, which did not. After implementing the NIE program, independent sample t-tests and multiple regression analyses were conducted. The results of the study are as follows: First, in terms of sub-elements of financial literacy, the financial attitude in the experimental group was higher than in the control group. Second, there was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of financial knowledge and behavior. Third, in the experimental group, financial knowledge had a significant positive effect on financial management behavior. The results of this study confirmed that the NIE learning method is considerably effective in financial education, which is essential for college students to fulfill their role as economic agents leading sound financial lives.

본 연구는 대학생들의 금융교육에 있어 NIE(NIE: Newspaper in Education) 학습방법의 효과성에 주목하여, 금융이해력이 재무관리행동에 미치는 영향을 실증적으로 파악하고자 하였다. 분석을 위하여 금융과목을 수강하는 대학생들을 대상으로 NIE 미실시그룹과 NIE 실시그룹으로 구분하여 독립표본 t 검정과 다중회귀분석을 실시하였다. 연구 결과, 첫째, 금융이해력의 하위요소인 금융태도는 NIE 실시그룹이 NIE 미실시그룹보다 더 높은 것으로 나타났다. 둘째, 금융지식과 금융행위는 두 그룹 간에 차이가 나타나지 않았다. 셋째, NIE 실시그룹에서 금융지식은 재무관리행동에 유의미한 정(+)의 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 본 연구 결과로 대학생들이 건전한 금융생활을 영위하는 경제주체로 육성하는데 필요한 금융교육에 NIE 학습방법이 매우 효과적임을 확인할 수 있었다.
