TEJU finance was launched in 2015 with the simple purpose of combining the best elements from the digital and the analogue world of finance education:
Ease of access, powerful search capabilities, and an interactive learning experience from the digital world. Not to mention free of charge.
A comprehensive, research based, and in-depths discussion of topics with high practical relevance that is usually reserved to textbooks.
While our project is still in its infancy, the positive feedback from users around the world encourages us to keep expanding our platform with additional courses and topics as well as with even more easy-to-use formats and presentations.
