The Digital Finance Institute is a nonprofit organization that offers free online courses to financial specialists, bankers, and business owners. They currently offer courses across several webinars, as well as a course on video.
The courses are free and they are generally well-reviewed, but the ones that I’ve seen are all pretty similar in style: three to four weeks long each. The one on video is longer, and in essence is the equivalent of a webinar, but the online courses all have a more interactive feel to them.
I have not done any reviews of any of the courses, but the ones Ive seen so far appear to be a bit more interactive than the ones on the online courses. One could argue that the online courses are not nearly as rigorous as the courses that Ive seen in real life. The online courses also typically have shorter duration, but they are on demand, and they are more often available for free.
Most of the courses seem to be taught by people with a background in finance. In one case, I think that the instructor was a CFO, so that makes sense. In another case, the instructor was a banker, so that makes even more sense.
I think that the problem is that in the online courses, Ive seen a lot of people who have a background in finance, and they don’t seem to be going in to the courses with the financial background. In other words, at the same time that the financial background is being emphasized, it is being devalued.
The problem here is that the finance course taught by the instructor has been devalued. This in itself is the exact opposite of what the finance majors would want. Since finance majors have such a high standard for financial literacy, I think that they would feel threatened by instructors that have no finance background.
The other problem is that the finance courses have been devalued, which means that the financial knowledge that the financial background has attained is being devalued. In other words, the finance major who has the financial background hasn’t been taught the actual tools that the financial background is supposed to be using.
So what does this mean for the college students in future who aren’t sure what they want to study? Is the future bright for them? No, probably not. The future is dark for them.
I know that a lot of my friends who majored in finance are going to make the same decision. They didn’t make the right choice because they went into finance for too many reasons; financial knowledge, and a financial background. If they are smart enough to go into finance, they will still have financial knowledge and financial background.
I agree with this statement. Most finance students are too caught up in the financial aspects of finance to be able to think deeply about what it means to be financially literate. This is why it is important to go into finance for financial literacy. Financial literacy is the ability to think about money. It is the ability to understand how money works, and how to budget for the future.
