Fidelity is offering a new class on personal investing through the Williams College of Business at Xavier University, according to a report appearing today in the Cincinnati Business Courier.
The new course will be offered to undergraduate students and will be taught by Stephanie Schuckman, a performance support improvement specialist with Fidelitys offices in Covington, Ohio.
The class will instruct students on personal investing and long-range professional and personal goals.
Fidelity executives helped design the course with Xavier faculty in the schools department of finance and is designed to allow students to interact with Fidelity employees, according to the report.
Fidelity started a similar partnership with Northern Kentucky University in 1998 to develop a minor in financial services. It also opened a call center on campus in 1999 that has been used by the firm as a recruiting tool.
Fidelity is currently in discussions to possibly expand the program to include partnerships with other local colleges including Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, said Paul Smith, Fidelitys Midwest region site manager.
