Personal Finance is at the center of all your activities

Are you feeling stressed about managing your expenses? Would you like to learn how to grow your assets and start investing?

Whether it is planning a vacation, buying groceries or planning to move cities for a new job offer, money is always a factor that we need to consider. If you know how to manage your money well, this can give you a lot of freedom with the choices that you make. For example, treating yourself to more expensive dinners with your friends or planning a big vacation because you were able to stash more money away in your savings. 
In this personal finance masterclass, you will further explore how to manage your budget, how your income and expenses change over the different phases of your life and how you can start investing to prepare you for a comfortable future.

Full Course Details

Session 1: Money Myths & Budgeting

In this session, we will tackle some of the most common money myths to get you started thinking differently about money and how you can use it as a tool. We will also tackle the topic of Budgeting, and we will help you understand what are the biggest sources of expenses and how to get a grip on them. 

Session 2: Your net worth over time

As a student, you very likely have a low level of income, since you are spending all your time in your studies rather than devoting all your time to a job. But how do your cash flows evolve once you get a job, and once you are 10 years further in your career? In this session, we will explain how your financial situation changes with your age, and how as a student you can start setting the basis for a successful financial position.

Session 3: Investing

After the previous two sessions, you now understand how to take care of your expenses and how your financial position will change over time. A key activity that can dramatically improve your financial situation for your future is investing. This might mean the difference between you retiring in the Canary Islands vs. having to work until you're 70. In this session, we explain the importance of Investing, and how you can get started as a student!
