Quizzing - Q

It is a quizzing league based on the finance domain. It gives students a chance to test their knowledge and in the process help them to prepare for tough interviews and expand their intellect moving ahead. The league is based on both academics as well as market knowledge. And it's not short on fun!


Who said Finance was all numbers and theories? FINAX also aims to ensure that learning finance can be fun as well. To this end, we design simulation games and events based on finance principles. These not only add the fun element, but also help drive away the fear of finance from young minds. This is quite important as it can help people see beyond the numbers and might help people make the choice of finance as a career.

Guest Lectures & Workshops

FINAX organizes lectures and workshops from industry experts to help the students gain a practitioner's perspective. Some of the more recent ones have been on technical analysis, fixed income markets and bridge financing. It also plans to invite eminent people from the financial world to share their views in the domain of corporate finance and commercial banking for the coming year.
