MBAs, primarily MBAs in Finance are said to secure the best placements in all of India. The reason being finance is said to be the one department that is very very important for each and every organization whether it is for profit or not. Their ability to manage finances is what makes them indispensable. However, a lot of colleges have mushroomed over the years hoping to replicate the same formula and make a quick buck. Due to their unsuccessful attempts, many students have been left with degrees that are worth nothing and are were an unnecessary drain on their resources. The only solution to this situation is to look for a course from a reputed institute that consults the industry before launching and designing a course.
BSE Institute Ltd (BIL) is that college with a difference. It is a 100% subsidiary of the Bombay Stock Exchange. It was founded to act as a bridge between the industry and the academia to ensure that students learn industry relevant skills and are able to start contributing at the workplace from day one. BIL offers multiple long term and short term industry relevant courses that help students and professionals grow as corporate professionals, entrepreneurs and as contributors to the society.
Financial technology is described as the tech that supports digital payments, mobile banking, algorithmic trading, contemporary investing, etc. This tech has brought about a rapid change in the way banking, finance and investing is done. In order to keep up with the changing times and technology, banks and other organizations are investing money to the tune of Billions of Dollars every year to build and maintain this system. However, due to the nascent state of the industry, they are unable to fully staff their Fintech divisions as not many people are trained to handle this. Those who are trained are able to command a handsome salary and in some cases an international placement. Thus, being trained and placed in this highly rewarding industry at an early stage will be extremely effective and smart strategy for any fresh graduate seeking to complete his/ her post graduation.
