Can’t afford tuition? Play the stock market

UAlberta prof advises students to make investments to cover financial shortfalls

If students are strapped for cash, they should just do a little research and invest in the stock market, says University of Alberta finance professor,  Amit Monga. “I personally think that the benefits of playing the stock market is that you get to really start tracking some of the key economic issues — macro-issues and micro-issues — that are affecting a municipality, city, or province,” he told The Gateway. “When you invest, have some kind of a target. What you don’t want to do is be greedy. You need to have that self-imposed discipline.” Monga also advised students to use caution when playing the markets for tuition.
