    Cool 's

    Hello!

    I sometimes have some issues with the " 's".

    In this case, which is best:

    -I want to finish the Wall Street Institute lessons before starting this course.

    -I want to finish the Wall Street Institute's lessons before starting this course.

    Thanks

    (Not a teacher) In my view, it is a matter of point of focus of the author.
