What are the prerequisites for an IIM Calcutta Capital market certification?

Indian Institute of Management Calcutta is one of the most reputed institutes for management and financial studies in India. The best managers and leaders in the financial sector have finished their post-graduation and certifications from this premier institute. IIM Calcutta is also the oldest postgraduate school for management in India.

With credibility like this, it must make many people wonder about the qualifications one would need to join the certification programme in Capital Markets or Investment Banking. However, with a bold vision of the IIMs and with the help of Imarticus Learning, the esteemed institution has curated this state-of-the-art programme for individuals who are not actively engaged in finance or who have not completed financial studies.

The programme has been designed to ensure that you become an expert in investment banking and capital markets within a span of one year, following which you get certified by the prestigious IIM Calcutta and become part of the institute’s executive alumni. This will allow you to move on to a more lucrative career in investment banking or capital markets.

There are three prerequisites for the programme. One of them is the will to learn and the goal to complete the certification. Now, let us talk about the other two prerequisites.

Prerequisites for the Investment Banking and Capital Markets Certification 

There are only two technical prerequisites for joining IIM Calcutta's Certification programme. These are:

  • You must have 2 years of work experience.
  • You must be a graduate with 50% marks overall.

Other than these two requirements, the way the programme is designed, you would not need any prior exposure to financial concepts and tools. However, if you do belong from a finance background or if you are working in the finance sector, it will definitely be helpful. 

The programme already offers foundational modules in financial concepts, financial accounting, and financial economics. By finishing these 3 modules, you will have a strong foundation to move on to investment banking and capital markets topics. 

Now, let us talk about what happens if you do not qualify due to any of the requested conditions. For instance, let us assume that you only have 1.5 years of work experience. In that case, there is no need to fear as you can have patience and apply once you finish 2 years of work experience. A certification from one of India’s best institutes for finance and management would increase your credentials and open up more doors for you in terms of opportunities.

Now, if you have 2 years of work experience and you have not finished your graduation yet, you can also simply wait for your results and then apply. If you feel like your results might be declared anytime soon, you can apply based on that as well. However, candidates are selected by IIM Calcutta before being enrolled in the programme. Thus, it is suggested that you fulfill the conditions before applying.

Conclusion

IIM Calcutta has also been recognized by The Government of India as an Institute of National Importance. The institute has contributed to the success stories of thousands of professionals and many businesses as well through its alumni. IIM Calcutta was also Number 1 in Best B-School Rankings 2021.

Thus, it is only fair that an institute such as this has a few conditions and requirements. However, you do not need to prepare yourself academically in finance before applying as the programme does not demand that. The IIMs are known for going beyond their capabilities to offer the best education to qualified candidates and with the help of Imarticus Learning, they are doing just that.

If you wish for a career in investment banking, you should definitely enroll in the Capital Markets and Investment Banking programme. You will learn topics such as mergers and acquisitions, equity capital market, valuation, and many more core financial concepts.
