To date we have trained over 116,000 financial specialists and expanded the institute to become the leading corporate education provider in the country. We now offer a comprehensive range of courses, which are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure relevance to the fast-growing needs of the market.”

We will strive to empower the industry by harnessing and honing the best talent, and serving as a benchmark in the area of corporate education.”
