We often read about news articles where companies are bought, merged, stakes sold, etc. for Billions of Dollars. These funds are collectively said to control over Trillions of Dollars, numbers large enough to surpass budgets of some countries. How does one qualify for a position like that where one decides investments of this scale? Professionals with the right knowledge, discipline and exposure are the ones who are selected by these companies. It is for this reason that learning from the right institution is of utmost importance.
The BSE Institute Ltd (BIL) was started by the Bombay Stock exchange to impart the best knowledge to students interested in studying financial markets. The Post Graduate Program in Global Financial Markets is one of the many courses that are offered by BIL in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkota, Chennai and Ahmedabad.

All our professors are currently working at senior level positions in the industry and are highly sought after professionals. This gives students a unique opportunity to observe the industry very closely. The curriculum is taught with the use of live business case studies. This allows students to suggest solutions to industry problems and challenges even before the industry comes up with any solution. This gives our students a quick, critical thinking ability that is needed in the industry.
