"Any fool can know. The point is to understand."- Albert Einstein
The word "Arthasya"can be translated into several words, but none suit the purpose of the Finance Club as much as the translation to "wealth". Wealth is not always in terms of money. Wealth is also knowledge. This wealth can only be facilitated with a thirst for knowledge, a desire to learn, and that feeling helps run this club.
As managers, we must know as much as we can to avoid uncertainties, we must know as much as we can about the expectations (be it in the market or amongst people). It is impossible to do any of this without accumulating a wealth of knowledge.
Arthasya tries to take this into account by facilitating learning through multiple agentsacademicians, researchers, industry practitioners and students. Arthasya gives us a platform to learn from the experience of others and ends up facilitating a process of gaining knowledge and wisdom.
Arthasya was set up in 2016 by a small group of participants who were interested in Finance and learning more about the intricacies of the domain. Given the current financial and economic scenario in India and in the international arena, it was crucial that we, as managers, should have a thorough understanding of policies, the markets and financial procedures.
Guided by these philosophies and quest for knowledge, the Club came up with a variety of small sessions to create interest amongst our fellow participants. Arthasya hopes to hold events that will host speakers that are well known in their field. Other activities being held for engaging participants are Mock Stock, Simulations, Finance tutorials and revisions, Study
Sessions, and more. The aim is to give them exposure to reality based situations and prepare them for their career ahead.
