Empowering Students through Practical Financial Education : 2023-24

On May 2, 2024, Ms. Punitha.R, Department of Commerce and Business Administration, orchestrated an enlightening session tailored for second-year BA and B.Sc. students of Financial Education and Investment Management. The session was meticulously crafted to demystify the intricacies of the stock market and mutual funds, utilizing cutting-edge online tools such as Money Control and engaging in simulated trading exercises.
The cornerstone of the session was an assignment designed to immerse students in the world of investing, where they were tasked with managing a virtual fund of 1 lakh rupees. This hands-on approach not only captured the students’ interest but also ignited their enthusiasm for exploring investment strategies and dissecting mutual fund dynamics. By actively participating in simulated trades, students gained invaluable insights and practical skills in evaluating financial instruments.
This innovative approach in integrating real-world applications into classroom learning has proven highly effective in cultivating a deeper understanding of financial markets among her students. It has not only broadened their knowledge base but also fostered a keen sense of curiosity and confidence in navigating the complexities of investment management. This initiative also stands as a testament to the transformative power of experiential learning in preparing students for future financial endeavors.
