Programs to build Career in Banking And Finance


The world as we must be aware is in a constant state of change. This holds true especially for the financial domain. Finance, one of the most important departments of any corporation has changed considerably in the last decade. A few years back, a career in finance usually implied three labels: Accounting Finance, Taxation Finance or Banking Finance. Since then the corporate landscape in India has become rich and diverse, there has been a lot of global integration with the presence of more MNCs. This fact combined with the plethora of options available for certifications in finance may confuse a fresh graduate. Hence, students aspiring to make a career in this sector need to be aware of the new emerging qualifications & skills sets required by the industry before choosing a career path. To help students plan their career, IMS Proschool has taken this initiative to publish an information booklet on the various career options available in finance.
