The Nagaland Board of Secondary Education (NBSE) works with the country’s leading stock exchange to spread financial literacy among grade 9 students across the state. The National Stock Exchange (NSE) Academy’s Financial Literacy course is now compulsory for Grade 9 students.
More than 15,000 Nagaland students are expected to enroll for this course this year, according to the NSE Academy. The course is called “Concepts of Financial Literacy” and was developed by the NSE Academy to help students become familiar with the fundamentals of financial and financial planning.
“The NSE Academy is committed to improving the financial literacy of secondary school students across the country. The Nagaland Board has played a very positive role in making the Financial Literacy course compulsory for Grade 9 students. We hope this course will raise students’ awareness of money management and financial planning in order to build a solid financial future. Additionally, after studying these NSE Academy courses, they will also be able to pursue career opportunities in the financial sector, ”said Ravi Varanasi, CEO of NSE Academy.
Students are taught topics such as financial goals, financial planning, savings and investments, banking, and family budgets to help them understand the fundamentals of finance. The academy will also train NBSE grade 9 teachers to familiarize them with the subject. It is expected that more than 15,000 students will enroll for the course between 2017-18.
