Justin Sydnor, Assistant Professor in Risk and Insurance at the Wisconsin School of Business
Justin Sydnor, associate professor of risk and insurance at the Wisconsin School of Business, offered credit card debt advice for college students and their parents on WKOW.
In the story “College Credit Card: Good Idea or Bad Idea?,” Sydnor says that accruing debt while in college is not necessarily bad, as long as it’s the right kind of debt.
“Credit card interest rates are still much higher than student loan interest rates,” Sydnor says. “The vast majority of students would be better off having higher student loans than having any credit card debt."
