The Calcutta Management Assocation (CMA) in association with the Calcutta Stock Exchange Investor Protection Fund organised its annual signature event for the student community – Money Matters 2016 – at the Calcutta Stock Exchange. The sixth edition of the competitive event took place on the 19th of March 2016. Various reputed management institutes and universities from the eastern part of India were invited to participate in the competition.
Money Matters 2016 had two competitive sections – “Money Matters Case Study Competition” and “Money Smart Quiz Contest.” The quiz competition was really exciting and participants were grilled on their knowledge of financial markets, tax reforms, current budget and the Indian business context. The case study competition required each college team to develop a case study on a B-school graduate’s career plan and also to create an Investment portfolio from a given list of NIFTY companies. The teams were questioned on their assumptions in creating their case studies such as insurance protection plan, inflation consideration, tax planning etc and also their choices of investments to create their portfolio. They were judged on the presentation of the case and their portfolio performance.
Neha Sudrania and Saitrick Mukherjee, students of Globsyn Business School, Batch of 2015, have made GBS proud by being adjudged the 2nd Runners Up in the “Money Matters Case Study Competition.” The teams were supported by our faculty coordinator Prof. Krishnendu Ghosh.
