XLRI launches diploma in finance

XLRI Jamshedpur

XLRI Jamshedpur has launched a two­year postgraduate diploma in finance (PGDF) in the online mode. The course plan includes 32 foundation and advanced level courses in finance, summer internships, workshops from industry thought leaders, capstone projects, and simulation-­based trading and valuation modules. .

Students gain deeper insights into emerging developments such as fintech, digital finance, data science and machine learning tools. The course is mapped to the syllabus of the Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) programme.

Blended learning

“The PGDF curriculum is aptly designed after extensive industry consultations covering the broader finance themes. Enrolled students will have opportunities of availing career guidance from the Institute, including connecting with XLRI‘s alumni network. Besides, the regular speaker sessions involving senior corporate executives will give students opportunities for interactions”, says Dr HK Pradhan, Senior Professor of Finance and Economics and Program Director.

The program directors are Dr HK Pradhan and Dr N Sivasankaran. The two-year programme blends online classes with a one-week campus module where students gain an understanding of the finance functions interacting with senior finance professionals and institutions.

Classes will be conducted during the weekends and another evening on a working day, with session recordings available for viewing during the term.
