Manipal’s School Of Fintech To Equip Tech Graduates With Future-enabled Skills
At the School of FinTech, students will undergo intensive training in niche technologies to enable them to develop intelligent banking technology solutions.
Manipal Global Education Services, an education services’ organisation providing customised and industry-relevant learning solutions, has launched the School of FinTech – the first-ever job-assured, online program in the FinTech space in India. This marks Manipal’s foray into building talent for the next generation of employees that are seeking to make a career in the BFSI sector.
Financial institutions have been ramping up investments in digital infrastructure to make smart and secure digital banking solutions available to customers, both institutional and individuals. From using ML-based chatbots to implementing conversational online banking, the BFSI sector has always been at the forefront of digitization. At the School of FinTech, students will undergo intensive training in niche technologies to enable them to develop intelligent banking technology solutions that will revolutionize the way banks work.
Speaking on the occasion, Robin Bhowmik, Chief Business Officer, Manipal Academy of BFSI, said, “It’s an interesting time to explore how we can transform and future-proof the banking sector. 12 years ago, an industry-academia partnership we embarked on changed the banking landscape and created a pipeline of ‘first day, first-hour’ bankers. Now, we are ready to do it again. School of FinTech is a real game-changer that will equip technology graduates with future-enabled skills - but that is not all. It will also provide them with an assured job with a leading bank. This is a crucial step in skilling the professional workforce and re-strengthening the economy. I am excited to see how we transform the tech landscape in the BFSI sector.”
With the School of FinTech, Manipal addresses a major skills gap in the BFSI industry. From making banking systems more secure and solutions more user-friendly, a strategic partnership with Manipal will enable banks to bring on board industry-ready tech professionals and accelerate their digital transformation. Starting next week, the pilot batch comprises students exclusively being trained for Axis Bank.
School of FinTech offers an 18-week online program which includes a seven-week intensive live project. Commencing this month, the first batch for Axis Bank will be trained in end-to-end application development using open source Java-based frameworks such as Spring Boot and Microservices. Learners can also practise on cloud programming platforms like AWS and be part of codeathons during the course. By the end of this program, each learner will master a set of skills which will help them build scalable IT products using the best technology stacks for mobile and web app development.
The program is designed for fresh engineering graduates and individuals with up to three years of work experience in tech roles. The curriculum will be taught online in a flipped classroom using a blended learning approach. This is a great opportunity for IT engineers as the course offers job assurance to its students as product developers with leading banks at a significantly higher salary than industry standards.
