Going forward we are also planning to convert the programs of Derivatives, Investment Banking & Other Industry driven processes into an MBA program, wherein it shall be Industry Created and Delivered so that ready Hiring force is made available to them which shall in turn bridge the gap between the University education and Corporate requirement.

It includes various Modules which include Financial Modelling, Valuation Models, Pitch Books and others, resources trained on which are Industry demanded at all times.
