By Staff Writer
We all know that education and improving our skills is important but, if you are working a full-time job, it can be rather tedious.

Fret not, though. The University of Cape Town in conjunction with GetSmarter, a specialist online training company, is offering the UCT Basics of Financial Management course. This 9-week part-time course will teach you about world of finance and its technical jargon while developing practical skills in budgeting, reading financial statements, cash flow analysis, cutting costs and investing.

This course is great for all the non-financial people looking to extend their knowledge of finance and financial management in business. It is also suitable for individuals who want to learn more about making good personal and work-related financial decisions.

The course is presented online therefore you are able to complete it wherever you are in South Africa as long as you have an email address and internet access.

The people at GetSmarter have also offered Justmoney users an exclusive 10% discount when they enrol (That's a saving of over R600!). All you need to do to take advantage of this special offer is enter the word "Justmoney" into the promo box when registering for the course.
