Magnetar Financial Education Initiative
The Magnetar Capital UChicago Financial Education Initiative is financially empowering students through high-quality materials, evidence-based approaches, teacher community, and scholarly expertise.
The Magnetar Capital UChicago Financial Education Initiative was launched in July 2016 to develop the tools, resources, and capacity to spread robust financial education across America. The Initiative will oversee and expand Magnetar Academy, a comprehensive financial education course for Chicagoland high school students, coupled with professional development and networks for financial education teachers and strategic support for schools and districts seeking to ensure their graduates are financially empowered.
Housed at UChicago STEM Education, the Magnetar Capital UChicago Financial Education Initiative will tap into the group’s expertise in learning science, curriculum design, digital tool development, assessment, and experience with schools and districts.
