2017/18 Summer B+ It is a very inspiring course that encourages us to start personal financial planning early for achieving the goal of financial freedom. The course is so practical that covers various aspects closely related to our daily life such as investment, housing, insurance, retirement and so on. Individual assignment (20%): compare different credit cards and write a reflection on an article you selected about personal finance It is not difficult. Just do some research about credit cards. Relate the selected article with what you have learnt in the course.Group project (30%): provide a financial plan for the client in the case study You should start to do it early since you need to spend much time on doing research in different aspects such as mortgage, health insurance plan and mutual fund. Assuming the project as a real case, you need to consider some realistic situations such as inflation, having kids after marriage and change in MPF after job promotion. After finishing the project, you will know more about how to make a sound financial plan.Exam (50%): MC and long questions The questions are quite straightforward. Put more effort into memorizing the concepts. Also, make sure that you understand how to do the calculations. Stephanie is passionate about teaching and very well-prepared for the lectures. She provides lots of examples in daily life and sometimes shares her own experience. It does not only make the concepts more understandable but also make the lectures become more interesting. She teaches us numerous practical skills that can be applied in both the group project and our daily life. Besides, she is very friendly and helpful. Since I am a science student, most of the concepts in the course are quite new to me so I usually have many questions to ask. She is always willing to help and give me some useful advice like suggesting some books and websites that are useful for me to learn more.This course is highly recommended, especially for those who are not business students. You can be equipped with lots of useful knowledge after taking the course.
