      FAQs

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Who is this 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 IPFT?

      Most academic programs in finance tend to focus on aspects of accounting and on theoretical aspects of modern finance. While finance theory and accounting are essential for understanding applied finance, ignore practical applications of finance and the technology revolution that the field is facing is leading to a huge skills gap between what the industry is looking for and what institutions are teaching.
      The IPFT-PT is the first comprehensive finance, quantitative finance and financial technology program which covers the entire arc of finance from basic accounting to the global financial markets and its impact on the economy, and financial technology including analytics, AI-ML, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, non-traditional data sources.

      What do you mean by Indian contextualization?

      A large part of understanding finance is understanding financial and accounting regulations, market specific nuances, economic factors, plus data and technological availability – which are all location dependent. While the program will cover details on global regulations and standards, which will ready the learner to work for any international clients or organizations, it will also ensure that students are ready to work in Indian markets, for Indian clients and for their own India focused start-ups

      Do you cover these topics :

      1. Portfolio Theory: Yes. From Capital Asset Pricing Model to the Mean Variance trade-offs and the efficient frontier, the course covers all details of modern finance theory and practice.
      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 in Wall St. to value stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities.
      3. Block Chain: Blockchain and related concepts of distributed ledgers are covered in fair detail for students to be able to understand these concepts and how it affects modern finance.
      4. Cryptocurrency: Yes.
      5. Investment Banking/Venture Capital Models: Yes. Investment banks and VCs look for analysts who can create detailed valuation models for listed and private companies, respectively. We cover the most common modelling techniques used by PE Funds, IBanks and VCs.
      6. JavaScript for Block Chain: No. This is not a programming course. 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 (FSD) program.

      Do I need to know :

      1. Programming: No prior coding experience is required. This is a finance program with an additional focus on fintech. All relevant coding material will be taught, as needed.
      2. Excel: Some level of comfort with using basic MS Excel or any other similar spreadsheet tool will be extremely useful. Excel remains the primary tool for finance – whether in auditors offices or in investment banks and hedge funds.
      3. Machine Learning: No. We will teach relevant machine learning tools and techniques which will be used in the financial analytics domain.
      4. Accounting: No. 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 easier. However, it is not a prerequisite, since we will begin at the beginning.
      6. Math: This is not a math heavy program. We do expect learners to be comfortable with numbers, since finance and fintech and even basic accounting is all about numbers.

      Will I be able to :

      1. Write an Equities Research Report? Yes. The program covers how investment banks build the models which underlie their equity research reports.
      2. Make a million in the stock markets? That is not something we can promise! However, it will give you a clear idea of fundamental analysis and stock valuations, and ratio analysis and investment research, which is used by some of the top investors in the world.
      3. Work for a VC firm? Ideally, yes. 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? Yes. From theory to applications, its relationship with the economy, the labour market and the psychology of the markets – we cover it all.

      What would work better for me – the full time or part time program?

      It depends on the time and duration of enrolment you would be able to commit towards the program. If you are a working professional, and intend to keep working through the program, we would recommend the part-time program for you.
      However, if are committed to a transformational experience, and are looking for a program that can catapult you into an extremely different job role – we would highly encourage enrolling for our full-time program.

      Job Roles that a person who does this program can apply for
      1. Financial Analyst
      2. Senior Financial Analyst
      3. Finance Manager
      4. Trading/Stock Brockers
      5. Blockchain Software Engineer
      6. Product Manager (blockchain)
