BSE Institute and Gujarat International Finance Tech-City (GIFT City) today signed a pact to set up a financial education centre to impart skills training to graduates. The centre, which is planning to skill 25,000 youth in the next five years, will have a simulated trading lab to allow students experience near live trading in an environment which mimics real markets. It will also develop customised programmes to train graduates from Gujarat in transnational skills and get them job ready for the companies at the Gift City. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in Gandhinagar between BSE Institute MD and CEO Ambarish Datta and GIFT City MD Ajay Kumar Pandey in the presence of RBI Governor Urjit Patel, Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal and Gujarat Deputy CM Nitin Patel. "The tie-up with GIFT City is an excellent opportunity to provide a pipeline of professionals with transnational skills and thereby increasing employability of the youth in the state of Gujarat. The centre of excellence plans to skill 25,000 youth in the next 5 years," Datta said in a statement. BSE Institute is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BSE Limited and offers various courses on financial markets.
