Getting a post graduation degree after your graduation or after a few years of work experience is nowadays almost a given. Having said this, most people prefer employing an MBA due to their expertise in managing operations, sales, marketing and finance. This is suitable for most jobs, but most students interested in Finance face an uphill task in grasping the industry realities once they start working. This is because no single vertical gets adequate focus and hence students have a very basic understanding of finance and financial markets.
A Masters in Global Financial Markets aims to change exactly that. The course is offered jointly by Mumbai University and BSE Institute Ltd. The course aims to help students interested in Banking, Finance and Financial Markets to build a strong knowledge and skill base in subjects like Derivatives, Forex/ Commodity Markets, Financial Accounting and understanding financial reports and statements. The course will be taught by faculties who are placed at senior positions in the industry and are highly respected for their contribution to the industry.
Students will be taught using case studies, presentations and interactive group sessions. This form of blended learning is what has been proven to develop and train well groomed industry professionals. This allows students to be exposed to the industry and its business in a classroom and lets them develop the skills needed to succeed.
The major subjects of the course are Financial Accounting, Financial Markets, Fundamental Analysis, Technical Analysis, Report and statement reading, Business Communication, Financial Technology, Technology Applications, Digital Currencies, Investment Banking, Private Equity, Portfolio Management and a summer internship.
