04th Jul 2022 | by the Department of PR & Marketing

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) College of Business and Economics (CBE) arranged a field trip to the stock market, Boursa Kuwait, to enrich students’ learning experience through practical means. Dr. Wafaa Sbeiti, associate professor of finance, arranged the trip for students enrolled in the Financial Markets and Institutions and Portfolio Management courses. 

Boursa Kuwait representatives spoke to the students about the company’s origins and establishment, Kuwait’s stock market history, the best operational practices used in stock markets, as well as additional information on trade practices.

Boursa Kuwait’s most recent financial developments were also discussed, including how it maintains its high international ranking. The presentation was followed by a tour where students saw clearance offices, digital screens, and brokerage firms. Students also got a tour of the new Nasser Al-Kharafi and Jassim Al-Bahr trading hall. 

“Our trip to Boursa Kuwait was very beneficial since we got to learn more about the stock market and how we can open an account to buy stocks and invest. It was a pleasant experience to walk around Boursa and discover the history behind it and how the Kuwaiti stock market has evolved through time,” said one of the students. 

Field trips as such give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge outside the classroom and gain experiences that will aid them in implementing their coursework material.
