If you want to understand how the world works, follow the trail of money.
Despite the 2008 Financial crisis and its after-effects, careers in finance remain one of the most sought after options for the smartest talent in India. Banking & Finance is the highest paying and the most thrilling domains and attracts the most ambitious people in the world.
At InsideIIM & Kampus App, we believe we can help our community of students, professionals and entrepreneurs to get closer to this world. Technical jargon and terminology have complicated something that everyone should understand. A lot of people decide to not pursue a career in Finance even before understanding what it is. So many of you chase it even though you are not cut out for it. This June we are going to help you deconstruct this world.
Introducing for the first time ever, the InsideIIM Finance Festival. A 15-day festival starting June 21st, where we help you understand the world of investment banking, stock markets, investing and also help you learn the fundamentals of finance. You will learn from practising experts from the industry and not get bland theoretical knowledge.
