Faculty from the Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF), Delhi, visited DRS International School yet again, to conduct a workshop for the students of Grade XII (CBSE & IBDP). Being an institution that is affiliated to the London School of Economics (LSE), ISBF offers undergraduate programs for Economics, Business Management, Finance and Accounting.
Led by Ms Navni Kothari, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, the workshop helped students to apply the concepts of management and finance in an interactive and competitive game format that untapped the power of real-world scenarios. Students used the format of the workshop to develop their practical understanding of concepts such as strategy, negotiation, comparative advantage, basis for trade and gains from trade. Games such as ‘Bake-off’, for example, challenged students to make rapid investment decisions and rely on their knowledge and business instincts.
The workshop certainly helped our students develop their engagement with business management, economics and other disciplines in the commerce stream while nurturing their collaboration and problem-solving skills.
