Prabal JainDeputy Manager, ICICI Bank
An extremely useful program for students looking to establish a career in finance. It offers insights into various diversified aspects of finance, from fixed income securities, investment management, financial advisory, and much more. We also got to learn from industry experts through various sessions held from time to time to help us understand what exactly the industry demands from us and how to excel in the same.
TAPMI’s MBA-BKFS is a well-designed course. It has given me practical experience with various concepts we use in finance via in-class case discussions, debates, etc. This course also has a perfect blend of Marketing and Strategy concepts which became handy during my internship.
Joining the BKFS course at TAPMI was a critical and successful decision for me. The curriculum is constantly updated as per financial industry requirements. The subject design and the faculty here give you the liberty to think beyond just theories, and they demonstrate concepts and their use through discussions and live case studies. Overall, it has exposed me to the industry and prepared me for my future corporate life.
BKFS program at TAPMI has helped me develop a multi-dimensional perspective towards finance. I joined here aspiring to prepare for the same old traditional opportunities offered in banking and financial services but ended up with so much more. I was able to widen my horizon through discussions with professors, guest faculties, and students over numerous sessions, workshops, and case discussions.

I am one of those rare combinations with an MBA from Medical background. With a passion for finance but coming from a diverse background, the course design was so systematic that my journey was seamless. The industry-relevant course structure also helped me a lot during my internship.
