Carolina May, CEO of FXStreet, explained the challenge making a University accredited course represented for her team: “At FXStreet we’ve always thought that education is the key to succeed in Forex. A couple of years ago, Gus Farrow came with the idea of converting our educational resources into an acredited course. He made it real through this collaboration with the University of Essex Online. The first intake was launched one year ago. We were pretty confident about our model, but also anxious to see if interest among traders would be sufficient to make the course live. And it did since 38 students already took the course and we’ll have a new intake in January.”
