The National Stock Exchange of India has partnered with HDFC Mutual Fund to set up a financial literacy program for Indian college students.
‘Investverse: An Introduction to the World of Investing’ is the name of the curriculum, which will be available to students across India in May and June 2022. It tries to instil investment habits in people during their youth and college years, as it has been proven that such behaviours contribute significantly to long-term wealth creation.
Navneet Munot, managing director and CEO of HDFC AMC, talked about the importance of personal finance decisions from an early age.
The course has been designed to help students from all educational backgrounds who have little or no experience with personal finance up-skill, train themselves, and face the world with confidence, according to Shyamali Basu, executive vice president and head of products, marketing, and training, HDFC AMC.
The HDFC Mutual Fund’s MFBytes application will host the nine-hour training. Both schools will co-certify the programs, which will be offered online and through an application-based module.
NSE Academy has impacted more than 70 lakh lives with its various programs assisting school students, higher education learners, working professionals and executives, according to Abhilash Misra, CEO of NAL, and this is another such effort to help college students learn and develop such important life skills.
