Singaporeans should be well informed about Yale. It’s one of the top Ivy League Schools in the world. According to QS World University Rankings, Yale is currently ranked in the 7th place. If the name still doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps this will. Yale-NUS is a liberal arts college in Singapore. Why the sudden talk about Yale? That’s because the Ivy League school has recently offered a forex course on Coursera at no cost.
As first seen on Coursera, Financial Markets, taught by Bob Shiller, is an overview of the ideas, methods, and institutions that permit human society to manage risks and foster enterprise. At this moment, there is not much information about the course. If everything proceeds well, newbie students in the forex market will receive an email notification about the course.
Here is a somewhat exhaustive details about the forex course:
“Financial institutions are a pillar of civilized society, supporting people in their productive ventures and managing the economic risks they take on. The workings of these institutions are important to comprehend if we are to predict their actions today and their evolution in the coming information age. The course strives to offer understanding of the theory of finance and its relation to the history, strengths and imperfections of such institutions as banking, insurance, securities, futures, and other derivatives markets, and the future of these institutions over the next century.”
What to Expect
Anticipate at least a 6 to 12 hour workload per week. Seeing how most Singaporeans work 8 hours per work, it’s best to study this course during your free time. Students will probably need to relinquish their weekends, but seeing how this course will aid your career as a forex trader, this is a small risk dedicated learners are willing to take.
