Typically, we teach our courses at the University of Toronto’s Mississauga campus, but sometimes we hold them in venues outside the GTA. But keeping in mind the ongoing scenario on account of the Coronavirus developments, we have moved our two-day course on a Live Streaming platform.
Yes! If you’d prefer to learn at your own pace, you can take the courses online and attend the live stream.
That depends on you. We’ve had students with no financial background on day one of the course and by end of day two they’re feeling comfortable. Like with all things, the more you put in the more you get out.
Of course it is. But that’s not really the right question. What would happen to the price of your primary residence if interest rates rose to 20%? The right question to ask is: do you teach risk management? And the answer to that question is YES! Risk is something that you must participate in managing and we’ll guide you along the way.
