IIM Bangalore’s latest offering is a certificate programme in financial intelligence and analytics, for officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The programme aims to provide CBI officers with knowledge in areas like financial management, financial operations and markets. It will be delivered by senior faculty members mostly from the finance and accounting areas of the institute. Guest speakers from audit firms, consulting firms, and organisations like Sebi and RBI will be invited to deliver practical insights to the programme participants.
The programme was inaugurated by Anil Kumar Sinha, director, Central Bureau of Investigation and Sushil Vachani, director, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, and was attended by the first batch of 30 senior officers. The programme is a comprehensive one which takes the participants from foundation to advanced level, and will be delivered through a 21-day, three-phase model with a residential component at IIM Bangalore and contact programmes at the CBI centre.
“In our pursuit of excellence in the investigation, we should equip ourselves to not only crack cases but to understand the nuances of cases whose implications are far reaching in the financial world. A course on financial intelligence, from a premier institution such as IIM Bangalore, will equip our officers with the latest knowledge and new techniques to do the work assigned to them with speed and accuracy,” said Anil Kumar Sinha at the programme inauguration.
