XLRI Signs MoU with ICICIdirect Centre for Financial Learning (ICFL) to Offer Educational Programs in Finance
XLRI - Xavier School of Management, one of India’s premier B-Schools, has announced a strategic alliance with ICICIdirect Centre for Financial Learning (ICFL) to offer educational programs in the domain of Finance.
The two institutes have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to take forward this alliance that intends to create a Knowledge Partnership that aims to offer programs in Finance that are contemporary and focused towards helping working professionals upgrade their skills to meet the opportunities offered in a dynamic environment.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Ashis K. Pani, Associate Dean, VIL Programmes at XLRI said “XLRI continuously strives to provide contemporary and relevant inputs across its Programs. We are extremely excited about this collaboration with ICFL. By leveraging the complimentary capabilities of each other, we look forward to successfully delivering high quality Programs to working professionals. In the collaboration, XLRI will bring its expertise through curriculum design, quality of faculty, content development and delivery while ICFL will bring a practitioner’s perspective by introducing programs based on the industry requirements, participation in content design and delivery by practicing professionals and reaching out to learners with the proposition.”
XLRI and ICFL have identified different programs under Management Development Programs (MDP) or Long Duration Programs. These programs could be in General Finance, Financial Modelling, Corporate Finance, Investment Banking, Mergers and other advanced topics in the broader realm of the Finance. Initially the collaboration will start with MDPs of duration 3 to 4 days followed by longer duration programs with duration up to six months.
“These programs could be seen as events for continuous learning and knowledge enhancement by mid to senior level working professionals. A longer duration program would be relevant for those seeking a development in the functional skills on both broader and deeper aspects,” Prof. Pani added.
Mr. Neeraj Joshi, VP and Head-ICICIdirect Centre for Financial Learning (ICFL) remarked on this association, “In today’s competing environment, there is a gap between those who are educated and employable. While the Industry constantly looks for the right skills, the learners look for training through reputed academic institutes with inputs on the fine points by practitioners. ICFL’s collaboration with XLRI will help us offer this proposition to learners”.
