Courses in fintech, blockchain and ML to be offered through online programmes and seminars

IFIM Business School, has announced a partnership with ESCP Europe to offer new-age courses that would meet the current and future demands of Industry 4.0. This would be done through master sessions, online distance learning programme and an international seminar in Europe.

This partnership shall offer opportunities for the students to pursue specialised courses in the areas of fintech, MarTech (marketing technology), blockchain and machine learning with ESCP Europe. Such immersions are expected to make the students of IFIM Business School globally-relevant ‘T’ shaped professionals, who are trained to deliver solutions for the new-age economy.

Commenting on the alliance, Dr Atish Chattopadhyay, Director, IFIM Business School, said, “The partnership with ESCP Europe Business School will help GenZ transform their knowledge digitally and stay updated on the industry trends and practices in the near future. A three-pillar course, based on a master class in Bangalore, online distance learning and an international seminar in London will mentor the students on global perspectives. Besides the bespoke course, students will build upon third-party content, business case studies that are leveraged during their master programme to transform the students to be industry-ready.”

Cross-culture management

Such global exposure would help students switch from a traditional work environment to a digital work environment. Thus, it is important for management institutions to give students a hands-on-experience, said Dr Chattopadhyay.

The first stage of this course will be a master-class by ESCP Europe on digital transformation. It will be followed by an online distance module based on the methodology that offers insights into problem-solving and decision-making and alongside, a thematic study on cross-cultural management. Lastly, there will be a long seminar at ESCP, London, held over a period of three weeks.

During this period students will be made aware of the best industry practices through academic training.
