Learn and Master the Basics of Finance


No prior experience or knowledge of finance is required


This course in Finance is meant for beginners and intermediate level students of finance who would like to get a good grip of the concepts of the subject and be able to comprehend the financial world.
Most of us read the news without really paying attention to the financial news. This is due to the fact that most of us don’t comprehend the basics of the subject. By taking this course, one will be able to build a solid foundation and understand the complex topics by breaking it down to simple concepts.
In order to take this course, one does not need any prior knowledge. However, I would like one to keep an open and receptive mind.
In over 3 hours worth of course material , you will learn every thing from the basics of banking to complex derivative products. The course is structured in such a way that it will gradually build on complex topics yet keeping things simple.
This course is also a great help for students planning to start a university course in finance (such as an MBA) and lack any prior knowledge. This course will ensure that such students will grasp the concepts quickly and not waste time figuring out the basics.
