Brief about Event:
From saving for a comic book to planning for retirement, effective money management is important for financial wellbeing. Indira Global Business School partnered with National Stock Exchange and conducted a Securities Market & Investor Awareness Programfor the students on 9th January, 2018. Students were exposed to capital market, debt and equity instruments and the penetration of the same in the economy. The session aimed at empowering them to become responsible, knowledgeable and intelligent investors.
The interactive financial literacy sessions conducted by Mr. Sudhakar Kulkarni, helped students understand the benefits of investing in the capital markets and how to go about making wise investment decisions. Also the session made students believe ‘the power of compounding’, if they start investing early. Today’s financial services market offers a vast range of products and services for investors. This session equipped the students with the information, knowledge, and skills to evaluate the options and identify those that best suit their needs and circumstances.
It is popularly said as “SMILE HAS NO LANGUAGE”. Indira Group of Institutes has always believed that corporate conscience is about giving back to the communities that keep your business afloat, maybe even ones beyond your reach. On the same lines Indira Global Business School has always promoted the values of cultivating social responsiveness amongst its students and staff members. IGBS Family including the First Year and Second year MBA Students along with the Staff members volunteered for taking this idea of Spreading Smiles forward. The activity was carried out by students and staff members on individual and group basis. Some Students even made their peers and family members a part of this wonderful initiative.
“We enjoyed our time with them. But one thing we learned there is that even with disabilities these children are happy and are willing to do something great in their lives. And they motivated us by showing a lot of energy and enthusiasm” quoted Mr. Shrikant Shinde, First Year MBA Student who visited Karunanjali, Talegaon-A home for Differently abled Children. “I experienced a life changing moment when I interacted with the children of CSW’s [Commercial Sex Workers]. These children are so talented and have an urge to learn and get educated.” Replied, Mr. Sameer Solunke who visited the NGO, “Swadhar”-a 24 hour shelter and education centre for the children of CSW’s and was a part of their initiative called “MOHOR”.
The initiatives and activities conducted under this endeavour were popularised by the students under #SPREADINGSMILES #IGBS #PROUDTOBEANINDIRAITE through social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. The students and staff of Indira Global Business School, Pune really proved that a smile can be the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
