EDMONTON, Nov. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - For Financial Literacy Month in November, the Alberta Accountants Unification Agency has partnered with the MacEwan University's student Accounting Club, Commerce Club and Enactus to invite university students to take part in a presentation that will help increase their financial know-how.
Financial Literacy expert Jeff O'Rourke, CGA, will teach students how to manage the cost of school, textbooks and the fun times, without the crushing debt load to match.
Students are invited to take part in an event before the presentation where they will receive a free My Money $ My Future student handbook and have the opportunity to chat one-on-one with O'Rourke about money related topics. Pizza and prizes will also be included.
