WELCOME TO BSE Institute Ltd.

Social Impact

BSE Institute Ltd. aims to achieve societal goals by engaging in and supporting learning for students in every demographic. One of our key CSR activities involves conducting workshops on financial literacy and life skills for rural women. These workshops empower them to learn financial concepts that are imperative for effective money-management, make them small-time entrepreneurs by helping them apply for and receive loans to fund their small-scale initiatives, and start building their morale by teaching them the benefits of financial independence. Through this initiative, we have trained over 1000 self-employed women in the Shivaganga District of Tamil Nadu.

Another key activity we are engaged in is our sustainable livelihood program, through which we have imparted financial skills to over 100 women who worked as beedi workers and beauticians. In addition to trade skills, each of these women were also trained in financial and micro-entrepreneurship skills. This helped them set up small businesses and manage their finances themselves.

Demystifying Demonetization

In this mammoth drive, a miniature economy was simulated and the students had to play the roles of various stakeholders who were involved in the demonetization drive. The game followed a sequence of activities wherein the higher currency denominations were withdrawn and replaced by another, midway during the game. Taxation and other related raids were also enforced to make the entire experience challenging and thought-provoking. It was observed that the game participants gained an insight into the inherent causes of corruption and other problems faced in such an environment through simple examples which were discussed in the session itself.

Students were able to grasp concepts much more easily as they could connect the same with real life situations.
