BOZEMAN—Montana State University’s Extended University has launched a new non-credit course on the fundamentals of successful investing.

The course is ideal for those who want to start investing or better understand investments already in place. It will meet from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. Wednesdays, Oct. 26 through Nov. 16, in 143 Gaines Hall. Parking is free on the MSU campus after 6 p.m.

Jason Hundhausen, an MSU alumnus, will teach new or inexperienced investors the fundamentals of investments and offer information about the process of successfully investing in today’s marketplace.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from MSU and a master’s degree from Purdue University. Hundhausen’s rigorous and principled approach to investing and attention to detail are key characteristics of his investment philosophy, he said.
