To provide hands-on experience and exposure of real stock markets to the students, School of Management at NCU conducted a Virtual Gaming Session, StockMIND on 6 October 2016. StockMIND is a nationwide contest on Stock Market organized by ICICI securities.
ICICIdirect Centre for Financial Learning challenges sharpest minds across the country by offering a platform to learn, compete and win exciting prizes. Over 300 students from School of Management participated in the contest who are given an opportunity to trade for seven days in the real stock market of India.
The gaming session bridged the gap between classroom lessons and real stock market. Simulation game is a practical approach of learning and enhancing logical and analytical abilities that helped our students in understanding the dynamics of the stock markets and achieving their career and personal financial goals.
This was a valuable and fun opportunity for our students to learn all about the process of making good investments, expanding their knowledge and gaining skills in investing, saving, communication, cooperation, research and decision making.
