IFO

IFO is an initiative to make young learners familiar with the need and art of managing money. It is expected that gradually the adolescents shall inculcate the habit of analysing finance in their day to day life, shall strive for savings and shall also invest their available resources to multiply their worth so that they have comfortable resources for their future endeavors. As finance knowledge for school students is at a very nascent stage, efforts are being made across the globe to structure it within the school curriculum. We intend to bridge this gap & would like to offer an international level competition.

Mock Stock

As entrepreneurs in the making, the students stand to gain from the mock trading event. It is a prerequisite for entrepreneurship that they make investments wisely and take responsibility of their actions. It is important for the entrepreneur to understand the dynamics of stock market as he may have to float shares of his company in the stock exchange to raise funds for his business. An entrepreneur needs to also understand how shareholders will be affected if he makes any wrong move. The event will definitely complement the Shilpreneurship initiative, as stock trading and investments are an integral part of entrepreneurship.

Guest Talks

Guest Lectures from industry wizards are also conducted on an ongoing basis to keep the students abreast of the latest industry trends and various managerial practices followed by the organisations. All this lends not only knowledge that is academically restricted but gives them a practical exposure as well.

They expose students to real-world life experiences from the position of someone who has been there. Students get an insight and perspective of the guest speaker’s particular field.

One important benefit that is derived from having a guest speaker is the enhancement of the students’ educational experience. They essentially get a glimpse into the everyday life of the speaker, which they can’t get anywhere else. Another added benefit is the link that students get to make between what they learn in their textbooks and what they learn from the guest speaker. Research indicates that it helps students build important connections between what they are learning and the real world.
