Some of the pioneer B schools in the country are now offering campus based eMBA-Finance (Banking & Insurance) program encompassing the whole range of Banking Services – Central, Commercial, Cooperative, Investment and International Banking with Insurance subjects such as Risk Management and Re insurance. Beside the classroom sessions, the MBA banking program includes on the job training, research & industrial project training. Students participate in workshops, seminars and class debates, solve case studies and have an opportunity to learn foreign languages. In addition to the regular curriculum, students undergo training in courses to improve their resourcefulness and networking skills.
These colleges have designed the program specifically, and strive to meet the needs of the fast expanding and crucial Banking Sector globally. The Finance Sector is emerging from its worst crisis in 80 years with tighter regulations and an overhang of debt in the West. The growth of Banking in emerging economies is changing exponentially and there is a need for bankers to address questions relating to opportunities and threats that arise from this and the lessons learnt if any.
Along with globalization, innovations in communication technology and de-regulation, the financial institutions have seen a tremendous transformation. Though these resulted in positive economic benefits such as increased productivity and capital flows, lower borrowing costs and better price discovery & risk diversification, they also lead to greater linkages across financial institutions around the world and increase in exposure to common sources of risk. In other words, the recent financial crisis has shown that financial institutes around the world are highly interconnected and that vulnerabilities in one market can easily spread to other markets outside national boundaries.
Keeping all these scenarios in mind students are exposed to highly effective management programs on skill set development by visiting faculty from reputed B Schools from within India and overseas. Some of the leading colleges of the country make it a priority to regularly interact with international dignitaries from USA, China, Mauritius, Israel, Pakistan, and other nations who impart valuable knowledge to the students. Students passing out of such portals are confident and are encouraged to acquire the required skills to lead and innovate in their career path.
These top institutes are the ones that not only play a part in the education of the students, but also invite top companies for placements and recruitments at the end of the year. They strive to achieve the right job fit with focus on ensuring that the students are placed in a company where they fit-in intellectually and culturally in India or overseas.
