UG Program

Indian Financial System and financial markets are never going to the same post demonetization and supposedly ‘re-monetization. There is much more wealth, manifold of what it would have been organically, that has flown into capital markets through different instruments post November 2017. Mutual funds, as a point in case, has seen a sudden jump of over 40% in Assets under Management, more famously called as AUM. This sheer increase in the size of the capital market has created an absolute need for finance professionals having insightful knowledge of financial concepts.

Another trend which has picked up in India Incorporation is to hire graduates following the ‘catch them young’ theme to get the work done which is more structured and automated compared to a decade ago.

Considering the above two phenomena and also the gap between rapidly increasing demand and supply of ‘adequately equipped’ professionals, ICoFP launches a unique Undergraduate Diploma in Business Management (UGDBM) which covers all key concepts of general and business management with a super specialization in three fields namely Financial Analysis, Financial Planning or Entrepreneurship.

UGDBM is a three-year full time program designed to create skilled professionals which are ready to take on the challenges of tomorrow. The rich curriculum based on the international standards will aim at effectively blending the talent of industry professionals with the academic excellence and focus on the real life applications of theoretical concepts.

The curriculum is designed in a way to cover all the subjects of B.Com (H) from School of Open Learning from Delhi University. By the end of successful completion of this program after three year the candidate would have killed 2 birds with one shot – A graduate degree from Delhi University in addition to a placements oriented Diploma.

This intensive learning ensures the enhanced career and employment opportunities with Financial Services companies, Equity Research companies, Financial Planning and Wealth Management Companies etc. depending upon the chosen specialization. Its coverage of Entrepreneurship makes it unique given the fact that India is the fastest growing startup eco system and ranks 3rd globally in startup ventures.
