About 500 students from higher learning institutions have registered into the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange’s (DSE) Scholar Investment Challenge which will help them to observe the world view of the world of capital market investment.
The global investment one of the main economic growth engine gives an overview to the scholars on where and how much to invest.
The DSE scholar investment Challenge 2016 is open to any Tanzanian youth who is enrolled in any higher leaning institution in the country, says the DSE report.
The project is an online simulation of live trading on DSE, where each participating group or individual is given a virtual start-up capital to invest using the DSE real time information for a period of three months.
The winner is the team considered by a panel of judges to have made the most sound investment decisions, the highest portfolio value and to have contributed in the discussion forum.
The universities with which their students have registered with the project are, Institute of Rural Development Planning, IRDP-Dodoma (104), University of Dar es Salaam (52), Sokoine University of Agriculture (46), Institute of Finance Management (44) and University of Dodoma (37).
Participants are required to use their official names and provide their registered mobile phone numbers, university or college name, course and the year of enrollment.
The participants may use DSE website and social media pages to participate in discussion forums and briefly provide their investment objectives.
