The Finance Club of SJIM is a student driven initiative that collaborates with both the corporate and academia from the financial sector to provide a platform for students to improve their quantitative and analytical thinking abilities. Students are encouraged to place their views on a wide range of topics like wealth management, banking, investment banking and economic growth. This helps them to get in touch with the realities of the financial world. The club also undertakes these activities with a view to make students aware about career opportunities available in the domain of Finance.
The finance club organizes a number of events to ensure that the students are better prepared to handle the nuances of the financial services industry. In a first of this kind, students of SJIM had an open discussion on the annual budget of 2016. Students placed their views on different aspects of the budget and its impact. They also expressed their opinion on how the budget could be different and compared it to the previous year’s budget. A session on Brexit was also organized to share our views on reasons for Brexit, how it would impact UK, European Union and India. A seminar was organized to make students aware about career opportunities in the Finance domain and to give them a gist on the valuation model of companies. A quiz on current affairs, and on basic financial and accounting concepts was conducted. The club also organized a combined session with faculty and students and it started off with GST discussion, including the key amendments of GST and how to pass the bill. A Finance Conclave was organized on 22nd September 2016 with the support of our Faculty Coordinator, Dr. S. Maria. Immanuvel.
