Mumbai 25th July 2018: After the overwhelming response to their Banking Management program, TimesPro and Assam Downtown University (ADTU) extended their academic partnership to include a new program.
This collaboration between TimesPro, a part of Times Professional Learning (TPL) and ADTU will introduce two new programs along with Banking and Financial Services - MBA with Digital Marketing Specialization and BBA for the undergraduate-level with Digital Marketing Specialization.
Under these programs a student will be exposed to the regular MBA or BBA curriculum and in the second year he or she has a choice in Banking or Digital along with Marketing/ HR/ Finance etc.
Besides the Banking program, the introduction of Digital Marketing Specialization will arm the students with a holistic view about best practices followed across the industry and their integration with an online engagement model.
While the existing program aims to enhance student skills in the banking and finance areas, the new addition will add a cutting-edge for students interested in the digital domain too. They will be ready with the tools and techniques besides the mindset of a true professional. The program has been created in such a manner that it makes one ready for a rewarding career in the banking industry.
Commenting on to Mr. Anish Srikrishna, President - Times Professional Learning, "The industry dearly needs professionals who understand the practical aspect of banking and can grasp the regulatory dynamics of the system. This partnership with ADTU for the North Eastern states will fill that gap and also equip students with the dynamics of Digital Marketing."
Eligibility criteria for all students is that those who have successfully completed their graduation level examinations without any gaps and through regular mode of education may apply for the program. These students after being shortlisted, have to appear for the TAP test and Personal Interview by an Ex-banker. After this short listing, they will go ahead with the training over four semesters at regular intervals which would act like periodic interventions for skill enhancement.
Professor (Dr.) Amarjyoti Choudhury, Vice-Chancellor, ADTU says, "We consistently need good professionals who understand the banking ecosystem and are fully equipped to deal with real time challenges of the industry. With this new partnership I am sure Digital Marketing will become another crowd-puller.
Designed by TimesPro, the industry integration of these programs with universities and educational institutes is facilitated by NK Das Foundation, which works with TimesPro towards imparting skill and employability based programs across North-East. Mr. Suudipta Daas, Chief Worker at NK Das foundation says, "There's no doubt, our partnership with experienced organisations such as TimesPro will enable us to build a large and a skilled workforce in the BFSI sector."
Since TimesPro has an excellent track record in placement, these students will no doubt reap the rich rewards of placement opportunities. TimesPro has placed scores of students by leveraging its strong corporate alliances and network. These students can be assured of interview opportunities at some of India's top banking, non-banking and financial institutions after successfully completing the program.
