NMIMS and Amba Research partner to harness financial talent in India

Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) has tied up with Amba Research, a global investment research firm, to offer a corporate valuation and equity research programme to both students and working professionals. The programme will provide participants an opportunity to work on real life contemporary case studies and will reinforce the process of critical thinking, attention to detail and meeting deadlines. It will also confer capabilities in all essential aspects of the entire equity research cycle, including industry attractiveness assessment, earning forecast model building, valuation and presenting investment recommendations.

Amba Research, a Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) firm, offers investment research, analytics, marketing and middle office support services to the global capital markets industry. According to Mohan Alexander, Founder and CEO of Amba Research: The KPO industry in India is growing and there is a significant need for qualified finance professionals to meet the demands of this growing market. The capital markets space is as challenging as it is lucrative, and we hope that this partnership with NMIMS will help young, finance professionals to be successful in their careers. The USP is being enhanced by offering the training programme on corporate valuation. This will help in building a solid foundation for finance students who are keen to build a career as analysts in the global capital markets industry.

Dr. Rajan Saxena, Vice Chancellor of NMIMS states that if you consider the critical needs of the finance sector which is fast maturing in India, this partnership will go a long way in not only meeting the needs of the industry, but also in building exciting careers in finance and consultancy with a global perspective for young professionals. This program will have 120 hours of classroom training reinforced with assignment-based pedagogy which will amount to about 15 weekends. It will be offered at the Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad campuses of NMIMS, and under the partnership, students will be considered for employment at Amba Research based on their performance during the program.
