Shillong: The National Stock Exchange (NSE) on Saturday partnered with the IIM-Shillong offering a first two-year full-time post-graduate programme in financial markets (PGP-FM) offered by an IIM, officials said.

The PGP-FM course will be a combination of general management subjects and highly specialised topics in financial markets such as financial valuation and modelling, equity research, technical analysis, derivatives trading strategies and financial engineering, they said.

According to the IIM official, the PGP students will be able to get a global perspective as the programme will include a visit to international markets.

The students will be able to simulate market conditions and develop trading, investment and portfolio management skills through simulated market software, specially designed by NSE.

"The collaboration will go a long way towards capacity building and creating expertise in areas in which the demand exceeds supply. This will help accelerate the development of the financial sector and the growth of our economy," IIM-Shillong Director Ashoke K Dutta said.

According to the Director, the tie-up is a move towards development of the NE region in which the government has been focusing on developing infrastructure and creating job opportunities here, adding that education and skill development are one of the focus areas of the institute.

In addition to the two-year PG programme, NSE and IIM Shillong will also offer a number of advanced level certifications and Management Development Programmes in financial markets.
