On 16 April 2019, an opening ceremony for Inter-Varsity Stock Challenge was held at Faculty of Business (FOB) in Melaka campus. The challenge is expected to run for a period of 3 months (May to July) with many lucrative prizes up for grab. The ceremony was officiated by Mr. Bryan Tiang from N2N Connect Bhd., Ms. Alyn Lim (Head of Dealing) from Public Investment Bank Berhad, and Dr Tan Pei Kian, the Deputy Dean (Academic and Internationalisation I) of FOB.
During the ceremony, 69 students registered to join the challenge. They were given a crash course on stock trading by Mr. Bryan Tiang, Director of Advanced Learning from N2N Connect. Besides that, Mr. Ching Weng Jin, Head of Research from Public Investment Bank Berhad also briefed the students with stock trading and stock valuation strategies. The briefing was then followed by the Q&A session with the students and staff. The banking and finance department of FOB hopes that this inter-varsity stock challenge would give our students hands-on exposure to stock trading, thus enabling them to apply the tools and techniques learnt during the classes to make a better investment decision.
