Indian Institute of Management – Shillong (IIM-Shillong), one of the top 10 B-schools in the country, has decided to collaborate with National Stock Exchange (NSE) to offer a Post Graduate Program in Financial Markets (PGP-FM). This will be the first ever 2-year full time PG Program in Financial Markets to be offered by an IIM.

An agreement was signed between the Managing Director & CEO of NSE and Director of IIM-Shillong on Friday, June 29, 2012. The move comes in the backdrop of the government's efforts to improve infrastructure and skill development in the north-east region, in order to create more job opportunities. The partnership will contribute to the region's overall development.

Officials from NSE revealed that they expect this PG program to help students and working professionals in improving their investment and trading skills and make them more job ready for the current job market. IIM-Shillong sources revealed that this collaboration will prove an efficient tool in building capacity and developing expertise in the fields where demand is more than supply. This will also catalyze the growth of our economy and development of the financial sector.

The course will cover areas including general management subjects, apart from specialized subjects such as equity research, derivatives trading strategies, financial engineering, financial valuation and modeling.

Students will be given a global perspective of the financial sector, with a visit to international markets included in the program. Students will be encouraged to develop portfolio management, investment and trading skills in simulated situations using software developed by BSE.

Apart from the PGP-FM course, the collaboration will also offer an advanced level certificate course in Management development Programs in Financial markets.

The development programs will be conducted for areas including capital markets, financial engineering and risk management, and will aim to develop professional skills. The certification courses will also benefit students from other fields of study, who opt to pursue them.
