NewZNew (Chandigarh) : India’s leading stock exchange, the National Stock Exchange (NSE) has partnered with the Lovely Professional University (LPU) to launch a three year BBA Programme in Financial markets and two year MBA Programme in Financial markets, from the 2015 academic session.
The courses will impart both academic and employable skills to students who study the BBA or MBA course and make them market ready, for meaningful jobs in the rapidly growing financial markets.
BBA students will study 10 NCFM and MBA students will study 14 NCFM modules e.g. Capital Market, Derivative Market, Commodities Market, Compliance, Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management, Technical Analysis, Financial Valuation and Modeling etc.
NSE’s MD and CEO, Ms Chitra Ramkrishna said ‘’ We would like to leverage our joint strengths to benefit hundreds of students who want to pursue a career in the Financial markets. Students will get hands on experience of the markets, by learning on specially created mock investment, trading and portfolio management software.’’
It is also a win win situation for industry because they can recruit job ready stock market Professionals from the University and in turn save time and resources which would have been spent on training new employees.
The University will give successful candidates a degree as well as credit marks awarded by NSE for the NCFM modules.
