CentreTerm course asks "Does Money Matter?"
RELEASED: January 24, 2008
Fabritius says his inspiration for the course was based on "trying to think about a class in the fields of economics and finance that a variety of students would find interesting. This is a class that has a financial basis, but that's intended for anyone who's curious about financial matters."
Fabritius invited guest speakers to his class throughout the term to talk about topics ranging from how to invest money to different types of insurance.
"We also visted a bank here in town and talked to loan officers and other bank officials," he says.
"The material covered in this class will help each and every student make better informed financial decisions throughout their lifetime," Fabritius says. "Each student, after completing this class, will be better equipped to make sound financial decisions.”
Gary Brooks '11 says that he was initially interested in the class because of the stress his parents have always put in savings and good credit. "I took the class to help me learn the best ways to invest and save."
