Finance Society’s first event for Spring 2017 was a highly appreciated panel discussion on the topic “A World of Finance”. The event had guests from various non-finance fields, highlighting the importance of numbers in their profession. The event’s tagline sums up what the event was all about; Numbers are everywhere!
The panel discussion was a very lively one, and reinstated the importance of studying numbers and finance while majoring in other fields. It was a great event to make students, who already knew, realize the need to focus on their finance courses. It was highly applauded by Dean CBM, Dr Irfan Hyder.
The Finance Society, in collaboration with The Accounting and Finance Department of IoBM and Center for Excellence in Islamic Finance of IBA, organised an interesting session on ‘Leadership in Quran and Sunnah’.
Guest Speaker Mr. Almir Colan (Director, Australian Center for Islamic Finance), shared some of his immense knowledge and experience with the students and faculty of IoBM regarding what Islam says about the style, attitude, and personality a true leader should have. He further enlightened the audience about how an economy should run as per the true guidance of Islam, what sort of attitude the potential future leaders should have, and that our aim should always be the best and top of all others, in the cleanest, ethical, and fair way.
To conclude, the session was loved by the audience, which was observed by the heated Q&A session that took place between the audience and the guest speaker. Students showed more interest in the session as majority took active part in the discussion over leadership practices, their role as students to improve the current economic conditions of Pakistan, and future aspirations.
