What are your financial goals for this this semester? The rest of grad school? The rest of your life? We’ll discuss how a budget can help you achieve those goals – and how you can actually enjoy doing it! On Wednesday, November 2nd from 12:00-1:30 pm in 68-181, the ODGE’s Financial Literacy for Graduate Student initiative will be offering a workshop on Personal Budgeting. There will be a multimedia presentation and a demonstration of online budgeting resources as well as plenty of time for Q&A and discussion. Interested students should RSVP here (Free pizza!). Get more information on the ODGE Financial Literacy Initiative. The workshop schedule is as follows: November 16 – Planning for Retirement; November 28 – Building a Portfolio for Any Weather; December 12 – Navigating Credit and Debt: From Student Loans to Credit Cards. All workshops will be held in 68-181. There is a completely free iGrad Financial Literacy platform (offered in collaboration with the MIT Federal Credit Union). It is customized for MIT with videos, articles, games, job board, searchable scholarship database, and interactive modules on a wide range of topics, including budgeting, emergency-funding, credit card management, identity protection, spending-smarts, etc. It is a great financial literacy tool for students and the MIT community in general.
