TAPMI to offer virtual executive education

T A Pai Management Institute (TAPMI), a premier B-School in the country, announced the launch of its new initiative — TAPMI Virtual, Executive Learning delivered through synchronous, and live mode to distributed classrooms in over 27 cities.

The first flagship programme of TAPMI Virtual initiative is a Postgraduate Certificate Programme in Banking, Insurance and Financial Markets (BIFM) and it creates a new learning opportunity for working executives.

On the occasion, TAPMI’s Director Dr Madhu Veeraraghavan said, "TAPMI Virtual is targeted at corporate executives who are keen to fast-track their career. This unique model of learning and applying concurrently is truly designed for life-long learning. TAPMI Virtual is really the future of classroom reaching quality education to those who need it wherever they are."

TAPMI has created a studio infrastructure on the campus from where its faculty will deliver the programme. VC Now, the technology partner of TAPMI, will deploy its video conferencing platform to connect the students at the classrooms distributed across India.

Dr Meera L B Aranha, programme head, Banking and Financial Services, said,"The penetration of insurance, credit card, digital payment and retail investment in the stock market are extremely low in India and with increasing awareness and the coming of an enabling ecosystem, the entire BFSI sector is poised for a qualitative transformation and quantitative growth."

Prof Surya, chairman, TAPMI Virtual Executive Learning, added, "The 11-month programme will be delivered through a mix of the virtual synchronous mode, campus segment, project work and off-classroom engagement. The campus segment will provide participants hands-on applied learning of market concepts in the finance lab through the Bloomberg and Reuters terminals. TAPMI Learning and Engagement Platform (LEAP) and Learning Tab will augment the learning of the participants."

The programme is scheduled to commence on November 11, 2018. Applicants should have a minimum industry experience of four years at reputed companies after completion of their graduation.
