NB: What are the major changes you see in education industry?

Tell us about importance of training / re-skilling for existing workforce.
Ambarish Datta: With change in technology, regulations, products and services being so rapid and continuous, it’s mandatory for people to be re-skilled . Life long learning is a reality that we need to accept. The concept of lifelong learning requires a paradigm shift away from the ideas of teaching and training towards those of learning, from knowledge-conveying instruction to learning for personal development and from the acquisition of special skills to broader discovery and the releasing and harnessing of creative potential. This shift is needed at all levels, whether formal, non-formal or informal.

They are tying up with industry leaders in each sector. We are working with them to build a skill pipe line that will service not only the growing demand for skilled BFSI professionals from local corporates from within in India but also to work global BFSI processes in the banking, investment banking and capital market verticals.
NB: Tell us about latest trends in the financial learning sector in connection with employment demands.
