Ms. Sonya Hooja, Co Founder and Director, Imarticus Learning says
, “The shortage of appropriately skilled labour across many industries is emerging as a significant and complex challenge to India's growth and future. What we have today is a growing skills gap reflecting the slim availability of specialized education and industry specific knowledge. There are thousands of CA graduates who are unable to find the right job because the knowledge that they have received is theoretical and may not be fully relevant to the demands of the Global IB firms. Through the CIBIF program, we aim to eliminate this shortcoming by imparting explicit knowledge and training in the dominant sectors of Investment Banking “
The Finance and Domain training will be complemented with a Personal Development Program, ensuring that the candidates are well prepared for the Corporate Investment Banking industry. A wide range of industry experts from highly reputed organizations will mark their presence for this program to share their expertise and knowledge followed by interactive Q&A sessions to provide guidance for the students.
The CIBIF course aims to reach out and fix the skill gap by providing in-depth understanding of Global Capital Markets, Complex Trading Activities, Financial Control across Complex Entity Structures, Regulatory and Compliance Reporting, and Treasury across the broad spectrum of IB divisions.
