The adventures are endless by exploring topics of banking, budgeting, credit, investing and insurance. These topics help students learn the value of money and managing it. IQ seeks to help them build lifelong skills to better their financial future.
Banking is important to understand because participation in banking services is typically one‘s first exposure to the financial world. In this section, we introduce financial institutions, how they work, and how you can utilize them in managing your money.
Budgeting is the foundation of personal financial planning. Budgeting allows us to manage our money by tracking our income and expenses. Since every person is different, it is important to know how to create a budget to use for our own specific needs.
In today’s economy, it would be rare not to use credit to pay for large purchases, such as car repairs or any type of emergency situation. Credit can be an overwhelming topic, but understanding credit is critical for managing one‘s finances responsibly, as credit can affect many aspects of your life.
Purchasing insurance is a way to manage risk. In this course, you will learn what insurance is, why you need it, and how it works.
Investing is an excellent way to build wealth and achieve your financial goals in life. This course will help you understand the key principles of investing.
