High School and College students from all over Southville Global Education Network (SGEN) recently accomplished a six-month stock market challenge in partnership with the Rotary Club of Makati Salcedo (RCMS). The SGEN – RCMS Stock Market Challenge was organized by the SGEN’s Capital Market Learning Center (CMLC). Participating schools were comprised of Southville International School and Colleges (SISC), Southville International School Affiliated with Foreign University (SISFU), South Mansfield College (SMC), and Stonyhurst Southville International School (SSIS). The challenge took over from October 2018 to March 2019. The trading period challenged the participants to battle through the highest profit at the end of the competition. A strict monitoring of market status was set to be accomplished through buying, selling and retaining stocks.
SISC students are prepared with the knowledge that they need catered to lower grade levels. The institution provides an intensive program on financial literacy and business classes, thus giving them a strong foundation on investment and develop a competent entrepreneurial mindset. Business teachers on the other hand consistently acquire knowledge on the latest trend in the said field. The institution’s business class program provides knowledge on economics and investment such as analyzing stocks using fundamental and technical data, reading stock charts, stock-picking strategies and maintaining a stock investment portfolio.
