Andhra University has been chosen to release the FINTECH course from the next academic session. This was finished at a recent high-level state meeting including the Vice-Chancellor of AU, authorities from the AP State Higher Education Department and CEO of MNCs, for example, HSBC, JP Morgan, Wealth Objects, Fidelity, Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments and UBS Business Solutions. The meeting was led by Special Chief Secretary and IT Advisor to Chief Minister, J.A. Chowdary.
Vice-Chancellor of AU G. Nageswara Rao said it was decided to start two cutting-edge and industry-specific courses that would cater to the sectors such as banking, insurance and financial markets.
It is a first of its kind activity in the State specifically including a college, government and the business. The course content, syllabus, time table and the modules, will be chosen by the business and even the asset people will be given by the industry, said Prof. Nageswara Rao. The content will be industry-particular and the college will give its assets and infrastructure.
Despite the fact that the admission and affirmation standards are yet to be concluded, the industry chiefs have guaranteed 100 per cent placement. The modalities will be finished at a meeting to be held on October 6. As per Prof. Nageswara Rao, the course will be novel, as in the two-year program, the students will spend one-year in the college and the second year will be entry level position program in the business. In the one-year diploma programme, it will be six months college and six months practical exposure.
“Once a student completes the course, he or she will be absorbed by the industry,” said the V-C.
In the progressing B.Com program in the distance mode in AU, HSBC has expanded its affirmation amount from 40 to 100, from this scholarly year.
Prof. Nageswara Rao said AU has a tie-up with HSBC for providing B. Com programme to about 40 employees of HSBC through the distance mode.
