The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Calcutta has announced an advanced programme in FinTech (financial technology) and Financial Blockchain for finance professionals. The programme will teach about FinTech and its impact on the banking and financial ecosystem. Additionally, the course will teach about using FinTech to design and drive new product strategies for their organisations. The programme will be offered in association with TalentSprint starting in May 2019.
This programme will be delivered in a hybrid executive format with onsite visits to the IIM-Calcutta campus and live online sessions via the TalentSprint digital platform. TalentSprint will also curate and offer start-of-art capstone projects for programme participants.
