The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) will offer two online courses in English and Spanish on covering marketing concepts such as how to plan for retirement, understanding your 401k, stock and bond markets, mutual funds and private and public companies, among others.
These courses will be available to U.S. journalists who report in minority communities. The online courses will take place from October 15, 2012 through December 9, 2012. Selected participants will be asked to propose a project that they will work on developing through the length of the course. A mentoring period to help participants finalize their projects will take place from December 10, 2012 until January 18, 2013.
