NSE, GGSIP University to offer BBA, MBA in financial markets
The National Stock Exchange (NSE) & the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University recently signed an agreement to launch a two-year MBA course in financial markets and a three-year BBA course in financial markets for the forthcoming July-August session.

The courses will empower students with academic skills on issues related to financial markets. The courses will also make students more eligible for employment in the financial sector. As part of the curriculum, MBA students will be required to qualify in 15 modules of NSE’s national certification in financial markets (NCFM). The NCFM modules are widely recognised in India as a necessary criterion for employment in capital markets.

For the BBA course, they will have to appear and pass in eight NCFM modules. The marks assigned by the NSE on these modules will be incorporated by the GGSIP University in the final grading of students.

The NSE will train the faculty of all affiliated colleges/institutions of GGSIPU and will provide a panel of industry professionals, who can deliver guest lectures in these colleges.
