      Frequently Asked Questions

      Who is this Finance program for?

      Anyone interested in making a career in high finance or fintech, who might come from a basic finance, business administration or technology background. Working professionals with some exposure to banking, or any finance related domain including operations, may find the program extremely useful to transition to pure finance and fintech roles.

      Why should you enrol for this program?

      Most academic programs in finance tend to focus on a few aspects of accounting and the theoretical aspects of modern finance. While these are essential for understanding applied finance, ignoring the practical applications of finance and the technology revolution that the field is undergoing is leading to a huge gap between the skills that the industry is looking for and what academic or learning institutions are teaching.

      What do you mean by Indian contextualization?

      A large part of understanding finance is learning about the financial and accounting regulations, market-specific nuances, economic factors, and the data and technological availability – which are all geography-dependent. While the program covers details on global regulations and standards, it will also ensure that you are ready to work in Indian markets, for Indian clients, and for maybe even for your own India-focused start-up.

      Which key finance concepts are covered in this program?

      1.Portfolio Theory:  From Capital Asset Pricing Model to the Mean-Variance trade-offs and the efficient frontier, the program covers all the theoretical and practical details of modern finance.
      2 .Equity Valuation: There are multiple methods of valuing a stock, from discounted dividends to using multiples (like PE) and ratios. We cover most of the popular models used on Wall St. to value stocks, bonds, currencies, and commodities.
      3. Blockchain: Blockchain and the related concept of distributed ledgers, including cryptocurrency, are covered in fair detail for you to be able to understand them enough and know how they affect modern finance.
      4.Investment Banking/Venture Capital Models: Investment banks and VCs look for analysts who can create detailed valuation models for listed and private companies, respectively. We cover the most common modeling techniques used by PE Funds, Investment Banks, and VCs.
      5.Programming: While we do hands-on coding in Python, this is directly for valuations and risk measurement. Core programming enthusiasts may opt for our Full Stack Development program.

      What is the program eligibility?

      1. Programming: Prior coding experience is not required. This is a finance program with an additional focus on fintech. All relevant coding that might be needed for the program will be taught as necessary.
      2. Excel: Some level of comfort with using basic MS Excel or any other similar spreadsheet application will be extremely useful. Excel remains the primary tool for finance – whether in an auditor’s offices or at investment banks and hedge funds.
      3. Machine Learning: Not a prerequisite. We will teach the relevant machine learning tools and techniques that are used in the financial analytics domain.
      4. Accounting: Not a prerequisite. We will begin with the basics of accounting and then move on to high finance, investments, and fintech.
      5. Basic Finance: If you are comfortable with basic finance, you might find this course that much easier. However, it is not a prerequisite, since we will begin with the basics.
      6. Math: This is not a math-heavy program. But we do expect learners to be comfortable with numbers since finance and fintech and even basic accounting is all about numbers.

      How will the program make you industry-ready?

      After graduating from the program, you will be able to:

      1. Write an Equities Research Report. The program covers how investment banks build the underlying models of their equity research reports.
      2. Understand the stock markets. You will have a clear idea of the fundamental analysis of stocks and their valuations, ratio analysis, and investment research.
      3. Work at a VC firm. VC firms focus on non-traded or private firms, which are extremely difficult to value. You will be taught how to use market sizing, market shares, and growth rates to value unlisted firms.
      4. Understand how the financial markets really work. From the core theory to its application, its relationship with the economy, the labour market, and the psychology of the markets – we cover it all.

      Which job roles can you apply for after completing the program?

      You can look at roles such as:

      1. Equity Research Analyst
      2. Treasury Dealer/Sales
      3. Risk Manager/Financial Risk Manager/Credit Risk Manager
      4. Corporate Finance Analyst
      5. Credit Analyst
      6. Business Analyst (Fintech)

      …to name a few.
