Here's a deeper look at both courses:
Fundamentals of Investing
Led by Jim Cramer, Fundamentals of Investing is designed to teach you how the stock market works, how to determine investment opportunities based on the news and more. Cramer runs through everything from how the Federal Reserve and other macroeconomic factors influence Wall Street to how to read an earnings report.
Cramer is one of America's most recognized and respected investment pros and media personalities and one of the most successful hedge-fund managers in Wall Street history. He managed money for 38 of the world's wealthiest families through Cramer Berkowitz, the hedge fund he founded. Cramer later founded TheStreet and went on to serve as host CNBC's Mad Money and co-anchor of Squawk on the Street.
Personal Finance Essentials
Take control of your financial future with TheStreet's Personal Finance Essentials course, led by Robert Powell. This course will walk you through the four pillars of money -- earning, saving/investing, spending and charitable giving -- that will help you better manage your income and expenses to save you money every month.
Powell's understanding of saving and investing has made him a trusted source for retirement news and advice. He is the editor of TheStreet's premium newsletter Retirement Daily, and his work appears regularly on TheStreet and in USA Today. In addition to his decades of experience as a personal-finance journalist, Powell has a long history of creating multimedia financial education for consumers and advisers. He's co-author of the book Decoding Wall Street, author of e-book 20 Tips for Retirement Investors and editor of the booklet Advice, Trust & Money.
