CRISIL partners with IIM Calcutta, TSW for its CCAP course


Mumbai: CRISIL has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) and The Second Wind (TSW) for its CRISIL Certified Analyst Programme (CCAP).

Beginning, July 2018, CRISIL will be launching the 12th CCAP programme batch, this time with IIM Calcutta as the academic partner.

The two-year work-cum-study programme is aimed at developing world-class finance professionals with deep analytical skills for CRISIL and industry at large. Its unique format combines 450 hours of learning (academic inputs), work assignments on live projects with classroom learning and interactive workshops, providing participants with exceptional financial and business skills, and making them organisation-ready.

Selected candidates would be offered full-time employment at CRISIL and, upon completion of the programme, awarded a Post Graduate Certificate in Financial Analysis (PGCFA) from IIM Calcutta.

“CCAP is our endeavour to provide holistic learning and work experience, and thorough grounding to young professionals, which will enable them to become world-class analysts,” said Ashu Suyash, Managing Director & CEO, CRISIL. “The course offers them a unique platform for career growth through two years of intensive classroom coaching even as they work to solve real business problems. It’s our privilege to have IIM Calcutta and TSW on board – they will add immense value to the course.”

Keeping in mind the skill gap problem faced in India, Ashok Banerjee, Programme Director, IIM Calcutta said, “We are extremely happy to be a part of this unique initiative along with CRISIL and TSW. The programme is specially crafted to provide a detailed understanding on the overall financial sector that majorly includes banking, economics and other financial markets which prepares participants with stronger foundation for their future.”

In all, 50 candidates will be selected through a stringent screening process. Accepted associates would study at the high-tech Learning Centres of TSW across India. Upon successful completion of the course, they will get absorbed in CRISIL as management trainees on very competitive terms.

Said Anish Srikrishna, President, TSW, “We at Times Professional Learning have always emphasized the importance of industry-academia confluence to shape relevant top talent. TSW, our executive education program, epitomises this philosophy with the CCAP programme that brings together the prestigious IIM Calcutta with CRISIL, one of India’s premier employers in the financial services space. CCAP will help participants develop in-depth understanding of the financial services industry.
