As an advocate of Liberal Education, FLAME facilitates students to explore choices, reflect upon them, look at their implications and outcomes and accept the consequences of the choices they make. The purpose of the FLAME Investment Week has been to educate the interested students a notch higher. The lecture series have enabled the students to make appropriate career choices in the ever evolving corporate world. One of the much talked about topic was ‘Value Investing’. The investing concept dwells on buying stocks at less than their intrinsic value. Renowned Businessman, Warren Buffet has been a strong advocate of the concept. The students were delighted to hear Mr. Madhusudan Kela - Chief Investment Strategist of Reliance Capital, speak about the concept of Value Investing at length.
