A descriptive research design was utilized by the researchers in the conduct of the study. There were 200 business students who are working who participated in this study. They were chosen through purposive sampling. A standardized survey questionnaire was formulated by the researchers and was sent out and retrieved via Google Forms. Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney U tests were used by the researchers to test the significant difference between indicators and the profile of the respondents. Results showed that there is a very high level of financial management among those students who are working in terms of the three indicators namely financial literacy, financial planning, and financial behavior.
