“Making Your Money Work for You: Personal Investing,” a Learning Edge seminar, will be offered Wed., March 21, at College Park in Grand Island. “This seminar is designed for those who have very little experience in the investment world,” said Dr. Gene Koepke, seminar presenter and a marketing and management professor at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
“The goal is to show participants that investing doesn’t have to be painful and to expose equities as a source of potential wealth,” he added. Participants will learn about stock analysis, long-term vs. short-term investing, mutual funds vs. individual stocks, and much more.
Dr. Koepke is a frequent speaker in the areas of marketing strategies, customer relations and economic development, and has presented programs throughout the United States. He previously served as vice chancellor for Academic Affairs, vice chancellor for College Relations, and dean of the College of Business and Technology at UNK.
Dr. Koepke’s presentation is one in a series of Learning Edge seminars being offered at College Park. The Learning Edge is sponsored by the UNK Division of Continuing Education.
Participants can select from two presentation times, 1-3 p.m. or 7-9 p.m. Cost of the seminar is $45, or only $35 if registered before the Wed., March 14, deadline. There is also a Friends and Family Rate of $60 (only $50 if before deadline) for two registrants paying by one check. Participants may pay by purchase order, credit card or check. Checks should be made payable to UNK and mailed to: Division of Continuing Education, Communications Center, University of Nebraska at Kearney, Kearney, NE 68849.
