The six-month programme will prepare students for a disrupted world economic order, says Santanu Paul

The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta and TalentSprint, which offers learning programmes on digital platforms, have launched an advanced programme in ‘Global Economy and Digital Money.’The programme targets finance and investment professionals, business leaders, policymakers, regulators and economists and it will help them understand the impact of rapid digitalisation and emergence of central bank digital currencies on the global economy.

The first cohort of the programme, which will begin next month, is now open for applications. The six-month programme will be delivered in hybrid executive format with live interactive online sessions over TalentSprint’s digital learning platform iPearl.ai. “We aim to teach professionals and decision-makers how to harness these techno-economic disruptions to drive superior outcomes in terms of growth, profitability and policy,” Partha Ray, IIM Calcutta Professor and Programme Co-Director, said.

“Building a solid understanding of the digital economy and the future of money is now critical for anyone who needs to prepare for a disrupted world economic order and a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape,” Santanu Paul, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, TalentSprint.
