IIM-Calcutta introduces courses in FinTech & financial blockchain
The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta has introduced an advanced programme in FinTech (financial technology) and Financial Blockchain for finance professionals. Starting in May 2019, the programme will be provided in association with TalentSprint.
This programme will be teaching about FinTech and its impact on the banking and financial ecosystem. In addition, it will teach about using FinTech for designing and driving new product strategies for their organisations.
The courses will be delivered in a hybrid executive format with onsite visits to the IIM-Calcutta campus and live online sessions through the TalentSprint digital platform. TalentSprint will also be curating and offering start-of-art capstone projects for programme participants.
Indranil Bose, one of the programme directors, said, “A vast majority of firms in the banking and financial sector believe that the lack of adequate FinTech talent is an existential threat to their future. We plan to equip and enable 2000 FinTech professionals in the next few years.”
