The programme content and teaching methodology helped in improving my critical thinking abilities and analysing skills. As an angel investor, I work closely with many FinTech startups. The learnings are helping me understand and guide them better.
Sweta Rau. Angel Investor

A 20 year FinTech professional, I joined the course to continue to stay relevant for next 10 years and it lived up to my expectations. IIM-C certification has got tremendous endorsement value—so many people in my professional network appreciated it! The programme has transformed the way I think about my career.
Harish Karunakaran, Director, GFS - Fiserv

I have been in retail banking for 12+ years and was looking to shift to FinTech, specifically payments. This programme helped me get a deep understanding of concepts and the industry, which eventually helped me get the job I have always aspired for.
Amit Tyagi, Business Development Manager, MasterCard

As AVP, retail lending, I work with a huge customer base and interact with several internal teams. This course has helped me understand relevance and application of FinTech in day to day retail banking functions, e.g. how to analyze and interpret huge volumes of data, block chain applications, etc. It will definitely help in future job/ career changes but what really matters to me now is that I am able to do my current job with a lot more clarity and confidence.
