FSS works to launch college courses on financial literacyThe Financial Supervisory Service is working on launching elective courses on financial literacy at some 100 colleges nationwide by next year, the financial watchdog said on Monday.
The move is part of the government’s efforts to help young people better manage their money and stay away from financial fraud.
So far, the financial watchdog is in discussions with 22 colleges across the nation to operate some 28 courses, seven of which will be prerequisites for finance major students, 20 will be electives and one will be a non-credit course.
The classes will cover different topics including financial investment, debt, credit scores and insurance.
