About Us

Banking, Finance, Business, and Technology in the 21st century

If you can picture a bespectacled financial analyst or a no-nonsense competitive banker doubling up as an avid blogger in her free time, then you would be quite the exception among the populace at large. Of course, we all wish that it were not the case. The world of finance is filled with intriguing mysteries and everyone would love to get the low-down on some of them, preferably in a language we understand. In response to this curious streak, we at the Jindal School of Banking and Finance present The JSBF Report. This is the spot where you get to know what we are thinking about, what new challenges we are considering, and what exciting solutions we are drumming up. We always welcome thoughtfully written pieces about fields of Finance, Business, and Economics.
