“Citizen financial literacy” is a new complex program on VUM online

The new complex program “Citizen financial literacy” has been launched in VUM online.

While developing this program, we aimed to overcome the stereotypes that are quite popular in our society. Many people may think like “Government will take care of my retirement”. But this is the wrong approach. Everyone should take responsibility for individual financial situation and its future development.

At the moment we offer the following courses in the program:

These courses cover the basic aspects of financial management at the personal and institutional levels. Further, we are planning to complete the program with such courses as “Economic Development of Communities” and “Taxes as Citizens’ Money in the Government’s hands”.

All courses included in this program are freely available. The language of instruction is Ukrainian.
