Course Overview

In today’s constantly evolving and highly competitive business environment, the finance function in an organisation has taken the centre stage. The treasury division of a business entity can now effectively contribute to its bottom line. The increasing diversity coupled with associated risks in finance functions have led to enhanced demand for qualified and action-driven finance professionals. It is essential to have deep and thorough knowledge of finance and its linkage with other functions as applied to corporate and financial institutions.

Due to COVID-19, Government has advised against all kinds of public gathering till further notice. For us, safety of our learners is important and hence the programme will be delivered over Direct-to-Device platform i.e. (D2D) where you can access online interactive lectures which will get delivered on your desktop/laptop/mobile. Once the situation improves, the programme shall then be delivered at our designated Centres

Also note that all campus visits shall be conducted once the Government lifts the travel ban and permits the reopening of educational institutes. Candidates will be given appropriate time to plan their travel and itinerary.
