We have often seen the words education, learning, and training used in the financial industry. It is not by fluke that these words follow almost every informative article talking about financial literacy. Advanced technology has made it possible for people to get educated without necessarily attending a four-walled room session. For instance, YouTube is an avenue that many have used to educate others on different fields. Many institutions have jumped on the wagon and are now providing online learning sessions to their learners. However, not all education is ranked equal, given the results produced by the learners. One of the many factors that affect the quality of education is the content and materials available to the learners. With this in mind, it is impossible to say that all education is equal.
This differing perception did not sit well with the famous online institution, Online Trading Academy, that sought more insight into this subject. Following Dr. Jeffrey H. Harris’s financial background, OTA had him go through their curriculum and provide an exceptional analysis compared to the needed education standard. This move came with a space for upgrading the curriculum if there was a need to do so. Dr. Jeffrey H. Harris has served in the U.S Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Economic and Risk Analysis and regularly at the NASDAQ stock market. He is the current Chair of Gary D Cohn Goldman, Kogod School of Business at American University. He reviewed OTA’s curriculum and could not hide how passionate he was about the institution’s ability to make financial education accessible and equitable.
Commending the program’s derivatives, Dr. Harris cited the importance of providing financial education based on sound economic theories. He applauded the institution’s course, research materials, and interactive sessions on the online platform called CliK. He compared the research materials to other high-ranking institutions confirming OTA’s reliability at producing highly knowledgeable and skillful financial literates. Online Trading Academy’s technological advancement is evident in its online platform CliK that heightens learning, risk management and nurtures a sense of responsibility and confidence. Celebrating 24 years in providing financial training, the institution boasts approximately 500,000 learners globally who have rated specific programs with 94.4% satisfaction.
