The Financial Analyst

The Financial Analyst programme is unique because it provides a holistic foundation to professional and students pursuing a career in Finance. Post this course students can expect roles in the treasury, investment banking, equity trading, algorithmic trading, fixed income securities, forex, management of accounts etc.

The banking sector is wide and everyday new financial products are launched. More than 10,00,000 jobs are available. However, finding people with relevant skills and knowledge is challenging. The course is taught by faculty who have trained more than 50,000 students over 20 years. The focus is on teaching how to apply the concepts rather than understanding just the theoretical framework.
