The internet is filled with advice, some good and lots quite dreadful. Compile two short lists of financial advice found on the internet: one list of sources of sound financial advice and one of source of questionable advice. For each source, defend your assessment of credibility. How do you envision the MBA program enhancing your personal and professional approach to finance? Be sure to make connections between the assigned materials and your ideas. You don’t need to write a huge essay, but it should be at least 350-400 words long. Please reply to two learners. Your replies to others should comment on new insights you gained in reading their essays, and how their ideas did or did not change your own viewpoint. Try to respond to learners with perspectives different from your own in order to demonstrate your understanding of other frameworks and perspectives.
