Syllabus


WEEK 1


STAGE I: Week 1



Welcome to the Finance for Everyone Capstone Project! In this first Stage - which encompasses Weeks 1 & 2 of the course - you will familiarize yourself with this 8-week course plan, reflect on your experience throughout the first four F4E courses, and begin considering an issue of importance to you that you'd like to address during Stages II and III of your Capstone Project! In Week 1 specifically, you will create an online portfolio to document your work throughout this experience (if you haven't already!) and begin working on your Reflection, the first deliverable of the course, due next week.

As part of this deliverable, you will be prompted to determine financial issues that matter to you; we recommend that beyond the scope of this submitted reflection, you spend some time this week continuing to think over what problems you may wish to investigate and address during the next two stages of this Capstone. We also suggest you look over the requirements for the Problem Statement assessment, which is due next week.

In Week 3 specifically, you will write up and submit your Problem Statement deliverable, the first major step in the Action Plan development process.
