Mumbai | Premier stock exchange NSE today said it has set up an academy that will offer all existing programmes offered by the bourse and meet the industry’s demand for the trained financial market professionals.

NSE Academy Ltd would first offer a 11-month post graduate certificate programme in global financial markets in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Hyderabad and regular classes will start from July 27.

The course has been designed by market professionals, keeping in mind demands from a large number of captive units of MNCs, KPOs, BPMs, custodians, pension funds, among others, NSE said in a statement.

Most of these companies are registered with Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) / Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) – the US and Singapore’s regulatory authorities and require financial market professionals for serving their US and international clients, it added.

Apart from meeting demands from large corporates, the academy would help provide trained manpower for International Finance Corporation (IFC) coming up in the GIFT city, Gujarat. NSE is also in the process of setting up an international exchange at IFC.

NSE’s efforts can actually make our students stand out as professionals in the global capital markets, NSE managing director and CEO Chitra Ramkrishna said.

According to the exchange, the participants will develop skills to handle international clients and will be exposed to the best market practises, during a week-long Singapore immersion programme, which comes with 15 global regulatory certifications in financial markets from the USA, Singapore and India.
