Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) have recently signed an agreement to launch a two-year MBA course in financial markets and a three-year BBA course in financial markets for the forthcoming July-August session.
The courses are being conducted to empower students with academic skills on issues related to the financial markets. According to Dilip K Bandyopadhyay, vice chancellor, GGSIPU, “As part of the curriculum, MBA students will be required to qualify in 15 modules of NSE’s National Certification in Financial Markets (NCFM). For the BBA course, students will have to clear eight NCFM modules. GGSIPU in the final grading of students will incorporate the marks assigned by NSE on these modules.”
NSE will also train the faculty members of all affiliated colleges/institutions of GGSIPU and will provide a panel of industry professionals, who can deliver guest lectures in these colleges.
According to Chitra Ramakrishna, joint managing director of NSE, students will also be taught investment, trading and portfolio management skills through mock software developed by the exchange.
