NSE, BVDU sign MoU to offer MBA course

BS Reporter  |  Mumbai/ Pune 

The National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the city-based Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University (BVDU), signed an agreement to launch a two-year MBA programme in financial and a three-year BBA course (Bachelors in Business Administration) in financial markets, starting from August this year.

These courses are being initiated for the first time in a deemed university.

Of the 30 odd courses which will be taught in the MBA and BBA courses, 14 papers in the MBA course will be offered by NSE. BBA students will study 8 papers on financial offered by NSE. These subjects include the cash market and derivatives, mergers and acquisitions, mutual funds, commodity market operations and corporate and capital market laws. They will also include topics like investment and technical analysis, surveillance in stock exchanges, equity research and options trading strategies.

The content of these subjects is similar to the NCFM (NSE’s Certification in Financial Markets) modules run by NSE. This will be a dual certificate course as students will get degrees from the University as well as certification from NSE. For the courses, NSE said it will train the faculty of all affiliated colleges and institutions of BVDU and will provide a panel of industry professionals, who can deliver guest lectures in these colleges.

“Students will be able to train on simulated market software, specially designed by NSE. This will give them a lot of practical experience, because they will train on the software that is currently being used by the market. We would like to empower students with these skills to make them more eligible for jobs,” Chitra Ramkrishna, joint managing director, NSE, said. Graduates and higher secondary school students, with minimum 50% marks, can appear for the entrance test to get admission in the MBA and BBA courses. NSE and BVDU will start the same courses in colleges affiliated with BVDU in Delhi and other cities in India.
