You have probably heard of freshers being being hired by top investment banks at whopping packages and wondered why. The paradox lies in the law of demand & supply equilibrium. A little analysis is what takes it to see that demand for adequately trained & learned finance professionals has outnumbered the supply for the same.
The word trained & learned has a huge relevance in solving the paradox. If you look at the total number of people willing to work in finance jobs, especially intellectual jobs like Security Analysis, Research, Private Equity, Venture Capital, Mergers & Acquisition, Derivative Strategies, Risk Management, is really high. However the question is, how many of those are trained enough to get hired in these dream jobs? This is where a short supply of trained manpower scenario comes in.
India is one of the largest recipients of outsourced financial processes. The growth of Indian Economy, Capital Markets and innovation in financial instruments has put forward enormous opportunities for aspiring finance professionals. To bridge the gap between burgeoning demand & short supply of skilled manpower an innovative & very effective course structure is offered by an emerging Business School, International College of Financial Planning which is part of Bajaj Capital Group.
