Finance demands so much new vocabulary, even at its most basic level, that understanding it may feel like learning a second language. It, too, should be dealt in the same way, in my opinion.
In any subject, having a teacher who is on the same page as you is beneficial. I’ve had some great teachers and some not-so-great instructors. Nobody can agree on who is good and who is bad.
The financial world is vast. What you’re learning right now is only the beginning. Only the tip of the iceberg is a college diploma. Banking, asset management, and mathematics are only a few of the areas covered by finance. Accounting and economics also have a lot of overlap.
The finance degree isn’t very difficult, however it may be tedious and stressful at times. As part of my PhD degree, I took a year of financial classes, and I believe that anyone could pass that class. But there is still a lot of work to be done.
Because finance is becoming increasingly statistical and analytical, having a good foundation in quantitative abilities will allow you to spend less time on wellness classes.
If you lack the essential talent, interest, and competence, anything becomes tough. Finance, on the other hand, appears to require greater mathematical skill than other areas of economics. Mastering economics, on the other hand, needs the capacity to learn and apply deductive and inductive reasoning or logic.
Don’t be too harsh on yourself, and keep working through it; the lessons you gain now will pay off big time later.
