Deciding how to invest, planning for retirement and taking control of debt can be confusing and overwhelming. Gain the knowledge you need to protect and increase your assets. Enroll in BUS-165, Personal Asset Management.

  • choose stocks, bonds, money market instruments, mutual funds and real estate
  • select the right life, property and health insurance
  • manage credit card debt and have credit card companies pay you for using their card
  • apply for a low-interest loan for a home, a car or other personal needs

This course will be taught by business faculty member Joseph Berlinski, who has more than 35 years of real-world experience. Unlike many instructors who teach financial management courses, our professors do not represent any commercial product. We just want to educate you!
