Mumbai, India, Aug 20: BSE Institute Ltd. today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tolani College of Commerce, one of the premier colleges in Mumbai, to set up a Financial Literacy Mission Centre in their campus located at Andheri. This Financial Literacy Mission Centre will offer various courses to students in the field of Finance and Financial Markets. These newly launched courses will include BSE Institute’s inimitable Global Financial Markets Professional (GFMP) program. On successful completion of the 12th grade, students willing to build a career in the field of banking and financial services can apply for this course with BSE Institute. Apart from providing coaching to enrolled students under certified faculties, BSE Institute will also help these students by providing hands-on assistance for internship and final placement. Speaking on the occasion, Vinod Nair, Head Academics and Product Development at BSE Institute said, “Financial managers cannot operate in a vacuum—they make decisions within a large and complex financial environment. This environment includes financial markets and institutions, tax and regulatory policies, and the state of the Indian economy. The environment we are present in determines the available financial alternatives and affects the outcomes of various decisions, both. Thus, it is crucial that financial managers have a good understanding of the environment in which they operate. Currently most formal qualifications at both, the undergraduate and postgraduate level, are very academic in nature and do not provide the in-depth understanding required to make sound decisions. The Global Financial Market Professional (GFMP) program has been created to fill this lacuna. This program is designed, developed, and delivered by industry professionals to ensure that students get the desired exposure to edify them about current market practices.” Dr. A. A. Rashid, Principal at Tolani College of Commerce said “The needs of today’s industry are very dynamic. Thus, our education system too has to adapt to these requirements. Education needs to go beyond class room teaching to make students ready to face challenges of the real world and also to make them proficient to survive, sustain and conquer in their field of choice. We are very glad to launch the Global Financial Market Professional (GFMP) program in collaboration with BSE Institute for the academic year 2015-16. This specialized program along with their regular courses for graduation will provide them with a blend of the basic knowledge of the subject in question along with the desired professional skills, which will help them to choose their futuristic career path. This will enable the students to be job-ready from the day they graduate and will be a preferred choice by recruiters. We look forward to the successful growth and development of the students with the help of this course, and we are sure to set a superior bench mark to achieve excellence.” BSE Institute Limited (BIL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of BSE Limited. BSE Institute offers a bouquet of courses related to financial markets for students interested in achieving and upgrading their skills in this field, ranging from 5 international PG programs to more than 100 short term certifications.
