Niche specialty courses like Investment Banking take wings

Imarticus Learning ‘An Investment Banking Education Institute' to commence operations with courses to fill skill gap in Investment Banking field 

Mumbai, July 5, 2012: Imarticus Learning, provider of industry specific education programs, today announced its launch with investment banking courses. They will offer CISI (Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment) endorsed certified training programs designed for rewarding careers within Investment Banking, catering to students, career changers or job aspirants. The first campus will be launched in Mumbai and the first batch is scheduled to begin mid September 2012.  The training will be followed by placement assistance and career preparation support.  

Imarticus Learning has been launched considering the growing demand of relevant skill sets that are giving a boost to vocational education. The conventional & theoretical education imparted in India is now proving to be insufficient to keep pace with highly dynamic business environment. In a survey conducted by Ernst &Young, only 25% of Indian professionals are considered employable by multinationals and this difficulty of Indian employers to fill job vacancies has increased to 67% in 2012 (compared with 16% in 2011). There is a dire need of professionals with practical understanding and adequate skills to make the required contribution to the industry. Imarticus has been formed primarily to bridge the gap between academia and industry.

Imarticus Learning has been founded by experienced senior professionals from the Financial Services industry. Sonya Hooja who is one of the founders has extensive experience in strategy development and project management across diverse industries such as financial services, education, public sector and pharmaceuticals. She has been associated with Accenture (Management Consulting), Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) and the erstwhile Lehman Brothers. Sonya has an MBA from INSEAD.

Ms. Sonya Hooja, Director, Imarticus Learning says “The need for pertinent skill sets and domain knowledge has emerged as never before. Statistics prove that in spite of having the largest youth population in the world, we have an alarming shortage of qualified professionals. Through our programs, we aim to elevate the skill levels of our aspiring students and job seekers thereby increasing their employability.”

“The current human resource requirement in BFSI segment is 4.3 million is expected to reach 8.5 million by 2022 as per a report by FICCI. Investment Banking being at the top of the BFSI pyramid, we chose to initiate our journey with this sector. It's an attractive career choice that is currently inaccessible to many due to lack of awareness and relevant skills” added Ms. Hooja.

In their first phase, Imarticus will launch two of the most integral programs of the investment banking and capital markets industry namely, Operations and Technology. The certified Investment Banking Operations Program is a 4 month program offering careers in Operations, Treasury and Clearing within an Investment Bank (IB). The certified Investment Banking Technology Program is a 3 month full time and a 6 month part time program which offers in-depth technical knowledge of global Investment Banking, with detailed product knowledge. It includes a technology overview, where students refresh key technical concepts and skills

The faculty would comprise of experienced professionals from firms such as JP Morgan, Cap Gemini, Avendus, Nomura and Citigroup. With cumulatively over 60 years of experience, the faculty is positioned to impart the best-in-class training through innovative learning methods.

Upon successful completion of these programs, students will receive the industry endorsed CIBOP certification and the CISI certified IOC enabling them for a career within the Investment Banking. Apart from the courses, The Imarticus Career Services team will also provide development, guidance and assistance throughout the program, equipping students with the best career opportunities available.
