Welcome to SSBF!
"Banking and Financial Services (BFSI) sector in India has come a long way traversing three distinct phases: the era of nationalization and priority sector lending, the era of financial sector reforms in the nineties, and now the era where technology enabled, customer focused financial conglomerates operating in multiple segments of the financial sectors. The demands of an emerging economy like ours on the BFSI sector are multi-dimensional. Financial institutions will have to master the fine art of balancing growth and inclusive development even as they relentlessly innovate to bring a wider range of financial services to the doorstep of the next generation customer. They would hence require appropriately trained management professionals to meet the emerging challenges. Advent of payment banks and micro-finance corporations only accentuates this requirement. SSBF’s two-year MBA programme in Banking and Finance is designed to provide specialized knowledge and training to address not just the growing banking and finance requirements, but also the increasing complexity of operations of the BFSI sector. More than 65% of our courses are focused on Banking and Finance and thus equip the students with relevant knowledge and managerial skills to work effectively in banks, NBFCs, financial institutions, and other organizations in the BFSI sector."
