A lot of students are now taking their investment classes at the university level, and it’s a growing trend.
“In our experience, students are interested in the investment classes because they know that they’ll get a real sense of what the investment products will cost and how they’ll be marketed, and they’re more comfortable doing that in a class,” said Chris Taylor, a lecturer in investment at Griffith University.
He said students were “more likely to understand how the products would affect them in their everyday lives and in the real world”.
“Students tend to invest more in the online courses and in an e-learning course,” he said.
“We also get more students from the private sector who’ve been studying online for some time and are now seeking to take up the business model.”
There are currently more than 150 online courses in Australia.
While most are taught by industry experts, there are also several online courses for people who want to get involved in the retail business.
There are also hundreds of courses that offer a mixture of investing, financial planning and even healthcare and health care.
While it’s not a popular choice, it can be lucrative for people to invest in an online investment course.
“There are lots of people who are looking to get into the retail sector, and we see that they’re spending more time and money on the online course,” Mr Taylor said.
“A lot of people are looking at the course, and thinking that maybe they’ll have more control over their money going forward.”
Mr Taylor said there were other courses available to people wanting to start their own business, including an online course that focuses on retailing.
“You could start a company that sells things online, but it’s hard to do that because of the regulations around online banking,” he explained.
It’s an area that is growing rapidly in Australia, and there’s a demand for the industry to be taught.
For Mr Taylor, it’s something that’s become a real issue for students.
A survey last year found that just 2 per cent of students had taken a financial investment class, but he’s hopeful the demand will increase as more courses are taught online.
“I think we’re seeing that demand, and people are more aware of what’s happening in the financial sector and what the retail investment courses are offering,” he added.
He says students who are interested are finding it increasingly difficult to make money through their investment courses.
“Most students are finding that the investment courses they’re taking are not providing enough value for their money to be able to make a living off of it,” he told 7.30.
