On this Occasion, India’s first Finance Lab for undergraduate students was successfully launched today in Vivekananda Global University’s Global Centre for Entrepreneurship and Commerce (GCEC) campus in Jaipur. With this initiative, GCEC has created history in the field of entrepreneurship and commerce studies since its undergraduate students will be among the first in the country to be trained and groomed to become better traders and efficient analysts for the financial markets domain.
GCEC, operational in Jaipur since 2017, is an institution with an aim to change the standard of higher education in the country, which focuses more on practical grooming rather than theoretical learning. The college is pioneer in focusing on practical learning, entrepreneurial mindset and new age curriculum alongside creating world level results.
Students participated in day-long knowledge sessions and group activities, among them being Jaipur Trading League (JTL) 2019, the first-ever mock trading competition for the student community, organized jointly by CredFIC, GCEC and TradingView. Top 5 winners were awarded with annual subscription plans of TradingView, which these students will use to further enhance their skills and talent.
The Finance Lab is a unique co-branded initiative of CredFIC and GCEC to educate students about financial markets, trading and investment strategies, along with developing students into better traders and efficient analysts. The initiative will also benefit aspirational student entrepreneurs to become financially independent and smartly manage their ventures and startups.
Interested students would be inducted in a year-long program on Trading, Risk and Investment Management (TRIM), which will be conducted by CredFIC and is scheduled to begin from September this year. The TRIM program is a holistic and uniquely designed curriculum that will expose GCEC students to concepts such as understanding the nuances of trading on the Indian stock market, deep research and analysis on stocks and sectors, investment and risk assessment, among other areas.
Speaking on the launch, Paresh Gupta, Founder and CEO – GCEC, mentioned, “Our objective has always being to provide the best learning environment to students and build their confidence for the future. We have created history by launching the first finance lab for undergraduate students, which is a proud moment for GCEC.

We sincerely thank CredFIC for making it possible.”
