Overview

Start to manage debt, investments, property and pension funds effectively

This online course will help you manage the household balance sheet, by looking at four key assets and liabilities.

You’ll explore debt, and how it affects credit scores and your ability to borrow; investments, including savings accounts, bonds, shares and holdings in funds; property, and the costs and risks of buying and selling it; and pension funds, including how to properly plan and save for your retirement.

The Open University’s Centre for the Public Understanding of Finance created this course, with the generous support of True Potential LLP.

For further information about registration, the final assessment course, your eligibility and the BA in Business Management, visit the Open University website.
