Stock market investing can be scary for some, but it doesn't have to be that way. Dr Boyce Watkins has spent over a quarter century studying and teaching about the stock market and he can get you started in no time. This mini-course allows you to begin your investing journey without all of the technicalities and thousands of dollars others will spend taking courses on overpriced college campuses around the country.
Instead, you'll have access to the brain of one of the world's leading economic experts and Finance professors, who will help you cut to the chase and learn the fundamentals of investing that every family should know in order to be successful. You'll be very happy you went through this program.
I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
My PhD is in Finance, which I obtained from The Ohio State University. My masters degrees are in Mathematics and Statistics, which I earned at The University of Kentucky. I also received BA and BS degrees with a triple major in Finance, Economics and Business Management from The University of Kentucky.
I have been on the faculty at Syracuse University since 2001. Before that, I taught classes at The University of Rochester, The Ohio State University, Indiana University and The University of Kentucky. I've been teaching at the college level since I was 22 years old, and have mostly taught classes in Mathematics, Economics, Statistics and Finance.
I am the author of the following books: "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about College," "What if George Bush were a Black Man?", "Financial Lovemaking 101: Merging Assets with Your Partner in Ways that Feel Good," and "Black American Money."
Finally, I am the founder of the Your Black World Coalition, an organization and independent media outlet with over half a million subscribers worldwide. We have played a role in confronting destructive hip-hop music, and have also led campaigns on various civil rights issues in the African American community.
