ICFAI to open two dist-level centres in Kerala
Thiruvananthapuram , Sept. 21
THE Hyderabad-based ICFAI University, a multi-State university seeking to set up full-fledged operations in Kerala, intends to open district-level centres in Thrissur and Kozhikode with immediate effect.
The "tremendous" nature of response to the CFA and MBA programmes has encouraged the university to aggressively pursue its plans to open district-level centres throughout the State even as the original proposal for setting up a State-level centre in the capital gathered momentum, according to Mr Renjith G., Development Officer, ICFAI University, Thiruvananthapuram.
Kerala returned the best performance in terms of new enrolments among the E category cities in the south, which includes Kochi and Coimbatore. ICFAI will complete its first year in Kerala in December this year. The ICFAI Business School in Hyderabad was recently rated as the 12th best in the country in identical surveys carried out by the BusinessWorld and Outlook magazines.
The `multi-State university' model that ICFAI is promoting has seen `ICFAI University' centres being established in States such as Chhattisgarh and Uttaranchal. These States have passed enabling laws for setting up such universities.
The ICFAI University offers a number of programmes in finance, banking, insurance, accounting, law, management and science and technology on full-time campus format and distance learning format.
Its MBA programme is designed to provide students with a general management perspective and introduces them to the latest concepts and practices related to functional areas of management.
The Master of Science (Finance) programme leading to the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter is unique in that it addresses the broader financial and managerial issues in the areas of corporate finance, international finance, investment management and financial services.
A student, who successfully completes the programme, is able to attain an expert level of knowledge in all areas of financial management and analysis.
The Certified International Investment Analyst (CIIA) is an internationally recognised advanced professional qualification for individuals working in finance and investment industry.
The CIIA qualification is administered and awarded by the Association of Certified International Investment Analysts (ACIIA) based in the UK.
