Choosing BFM course at MLDC was one of my best decision because it helped me built a strong foundation for my ahead career. The best part of my experience at MLDC was the flexibility and freedom to work on multiple projects and one of my exciting projects was to start the Finance club in MLDC for all the courses to learn the basics of smart investment from an early age. BFM definitely helped me and my peers’ open doors to the best international universities.

Having done my bachelor’s in financial markets with the knowledge received about markets is irreplaceable and put to a test right out of college during the 2020 crisis. Except for the bookish knowledge that we received, the practical knowledge received in MLDC while undergrad has been extremely helpful during all the little or less corporate experience I have had. (Especially the interviews and job selection). I will always be extremely grateful to everybody who has been a part of this journey.

The key learning which I have acclimate throughout my journey in Bachelors of Financial Market is to be patient,calm and hopeful. My public speaking confidence has increased crucially as the result of the presentations during my time at MLDC BFM. Key learning: Discipline yourself to the stocks as long as the fundamental story of the company hasn’t changed.

It was indeed a great experience pursuing BFM from MLDC. Pursuing BFM has turned out to be a perfect choice for me as it prepped me for a career in the field of Investment management. Professors were quite approachable which made the lectures interactive, fun and educational. Theoretical concepts were well complemented by the practical knowledge shared by the professors who were either working or had previously worked with leading financial companies, thereby helping us in practical applications of such concepts.

The concepts have been taught thoroughly & in an engaging way. The environment is extremely disciplined in classroom. The professors lay a great emphasis on being familiar with the market developments along with the fundamentals.

MLDC opened doors for me back in 2018 when I opted for Bachelors in Financial Markets (BFM). Strangely, BFM has explored my hidden talents in different ways. I never knew content creation would be my forte, but now it has become one. BFM enables you to find the best out of your capabilities personally as well as academically. And the cherry on the cake was the subjects being taught by industry faculties. A perfect mixture of academics and corporate insights! Also, don’t forget to participate in classroom activities. This is where you meet subjects practically.

Like most students, it was at MLDC where I had first learned about stock markets. BFM has long been seen as a course for those students who have been denied admissions in other streams. Faculties at MLDC, BFM have truly worked tirelessly and changed that perception. From hands-on class activities and keeping students up to date on market events, to viewing the Live Budget every year and now working on a full-fledged blog like Dstreetanalyser, students are being shaped to become industry ready professionals.

During my whole journey of BFM, we have done many activities and competitions like Stockathon, DSIJ Stock Market Challenge and even organized a 2-day workshop on investor awareness called as “Investor Expo” in which different types of investment were discussed. Regular discussion of news, recent developments in Indian and Global markets as well as on economy has broaden our knowledge base.

Being a part of MLDC BFM was like a roller coaster ride I never really thought of doing BFM before coming to MLDC. I not only learned different aspects of Marketing and Finance with all the academic and practical activities performed in the class, it also give me the confidence to talk in front of people with the all presentations we were supposed to do. MLDC BFM brought best out of and give me the best I could ask for.

MLDC BFM was one of the best things that happened to me in the past few years. Out of all the things that I was taught there, I learnt that patience, understanding and consistency, while required to invest in any market are also required in real life. With constant support of the entire college staff (teaching and non teaching) I was able to perform to the best of my abilities, both academically and culturally. If it wasn’t for them, who took pride in my every performance and win, I don’t think I would be able to balance out studying and dancing, simultaneously. MLDC BFM was a “short term investment” with “life time returns”

The BFM Department of ML Dahanukar college is an institution in itself. I remember my first day in college I was super intimidated by the world of finance and was skeptical about my decision. Over a person of time, the faculty members with their rich knowledge and experience in the field of finance not only made me comfortable with the subject but helped me enjoy it thoroughly. The college has not only helped me academically but it has also helped me strengthen my core values. Time and again the faculty members constantly emphasized on the importance of having right set of moral principles in life. The college has not only contributed in students being a better professional but also a better person.

Coming from a Science Background, I was totally unaware of how the commerce industry works. Over the course of 3 years that I was with MLDC BFM, I have gained so much insights into the industry, thanks to the amazing faculty out there. MLDC BFM provides students with a lot of opportunities to dwell in the industry by providing real time experience through various activities. Not a single month passed by where in I wasn’t involved in something..There’s “beat the street” challenge to learn and get expertise in Stock market, there’s a “Wings2Vision” where I can show their entrepreneurship skills…And to top it all..There’s a finance club which keeps you updated with all the latest global financial news..My experience was exemplary and I wish I could go back to those days.

I was privileged to be a part of BFM at M. L. Dahanukar college from 2018 – 2020. My three years of graduation were most enriching in terms of excellent guidance by all the faculty members, blended with a plethora of opportunities for co- and extra-curricular activities. Since most of the faculty members have corporate experience, it makes a difference in shaping up the conduct of the programs. This helped me with qualities like confidence, independent thinking and multitasking.
