Virtual Stock Exchange Competition in Partnership with Blominvest Bank s.a.l.
Blominvest Bank s.a.l. partnered for the first time with the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics at Haigazian University, in sponsoring a virtual stock exchange competition among its students.
“This joint effort between the two entities aims at spreading awareness in capital markets among the future generations, as well as in reinforcing the “experiential learning” approach adopted by Haigazian University”, as stated by the Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics, at the prize distribution ceremony.
During the course of three months, students across Haigazian University took part in a simulated Stock Exchange competition, where they built and managed portfolios and competed against each other. They also attended workshops for various support in the field.
A refereeing panel composed of Haigazian University Business Faculty and Blominvest executives, judged the presentations of the 5 finalists. The criteria of judging included a weighing between the strategy used, score and presentation skills.
The three winners, Garen Nercess, Sevag Bekerejian and Khaled Bouhassoun, respectively won monetary prizes of $ 2,000, $ 1,500 and $ 1,000.
