Raipur: In a bid to help students step into the world of stocks and investment, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Raipur joined hands with StockGro to organise the Virtual Stock Trading Competition at the institute from March 15-22.
During the week-long extravaganza, the teams participated in a two-day trading simulation event on the StockGro platform. Every individual player was tested based on their ability to invest the right virtual amount in the stocks and the one with the highest yield was declared the round winner.
The trading competition was followed by a 20-minute online quiz in which the qualifying teams attempted to display their financial knowledge. The second-round winners later moved on to the final competition of Excel Based Simulation, where the top eight teams were set to battle it out in an interactive online simulation game.
The winning team got richer by Rs 17,000 while the runner-up and second runner-up received Rs 10,000, and Rs 5,000 respectively.
