The platform will equip students to understand the fundamentals that underpin the capital markets and technologies by providing a safe, simulated trading environment and hands-on experience in testing and developing strategies with real time data, the college said in a statement.
Dr. Aloysius Edward J, Dean at the Faculty of Commerce & Management said, “The Simulated Market Trading Lab will provide the commerce and management students with an immersive learning experience in stocks, futures, options and currency derivatives by using real time data without any financial risk. This will bolster their capabilities being industry ready, to understand, identify and solve challenging business problems in an agile and innovative manner.”
“There is an increasing need to educate and transform the institutional spaces to remodel theoretical knowledge into impactful and innovation driven practices. This collaboration will enable the students to experience a live market environment and understand the mechanics of the capital market; while creating a powerful knowledge bank of experiential learning.” said Fr. Dr. Augustine George, Principal at Kristu Jayanti College.
The association with NSE Academy will also extend to providing capstone projects, interactive workshops, expert lectures and peer learning discussions to impart financial awareness and build on the capability of the students, the statement added.
