The Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Investment Banking (PGCPIB) is designed to provide professionals with the necessary knowledge to handle various aspects of investment banking roles and responsibilities, such as asset management, security valuation, and other derivatives instruments in order to meet specific investment goals for the benefit of investors. . The course also aims to cater the other functional areas of investment banking like Mergers & Acquisitions, Investment, and portfolio management and investment advisory services to high net worth individuals. The programme also covers the tools and techniques necessary to optimise the risk-return framework across various asset classes.
The primary function of investment banking is to raise funds for clients. This is primarily accomplished in two ways: by issuing the company’s equity and debt. A company that wants to issue bonds hires an investment bank not only to help structure the bonds, but also to tap into their vast network of potential investors. It works in the same way when selling equity or stock to raise funds. When a company holds an Initial Public Offering (IPO) to sell stock to the general public, investment bankers are the first people to call. Investment bankers’ responsibilities also include determining the IPO price.
The programme equips participants with current knowledge and skills in the field of investment banking. In short, the programme will prepare participants to make informed and effective decisions in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings (IPOs), valuation, bond trading portfolio advisory services, and other areas, as well as provide hands-on knowledge and skills necessary to become a successful Investment Banker.
The programme is designed to prepare commerce and non-commerce graduates for core investment banking and other specialised finance jobs such as Investment Banking, Equity Research, Credit Analysis, Financial Analysis, Project Finance, Portfolio Management, Capital Markets, and other related fields. This course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the concepts and real-world applications of finance, as well as practical case studies. Full-time students and working professionals alike will benefit from the program’s flexible design.
The program’s goal is to educate participants who want to work in investment management, whether they have prior experience in the field or not. The programme is designed in such a way that participants from any stream can gain the necessary knowledge to become an expert in investment management. It is intended for executives who have recently assumed or are being groomed to assume significant managerial responsibilities in the field of investment management in the future. The programme would build on such executives’ previous work experience while also providing them with additional knowledge and skills to help them become more effective investment managers.
