There have been lots of conversations that have been swirling around lately. One of the major ones is about finance and the economy. If you're one of those people who wants to know what's going on but have literally no idea what's going on, then you're in luck — McGill offers a free course on finance basics throughout the year.
Collaborating with RBC Future Launch and The Globe and Mail, the McGill Personal Finance Essentials is offered four times this year, with the next session now open for registration.
If you're ready to take charge of your personal finances, then you're in the right place.
Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University
The course offers eight modules from different financial experts from McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management, covering a range of topics, including Understanding Debt and Borrowing, The Art of Investing and Behavioural Finance.
Not only is the course offering completely free, but you can take the course at your own pace.
Once complete, you'll receive an "attestation of completion."
The page does note that "the course is non-credit non-transcript and does not count towards any McGill University program, degree, diploma, or certificate."
That said, it's a great way to get a basic understanding.
