Two-thirds of young adults lack basic knowledge about investing. MarketWorks takes students through a step-by-step learning curriculum that sets a foundation for building good financial health and capability. Through an engaging, interactive learning experience, students blend economic concepts with investing topics to learn how the government, corporations and individuals come together to participate in the financial marketplace. Modules are focused on financial markets and exchanges, the global economy, company financing from startup to IPO, and fundamentals of investing. The course concludes with an interactive investment portfolio simulation.
