Bajaj Finserv and NIIT Ltd announce partnership to create large-scale, job- ready pool of freshers for BFSI industry

NIIT Institute of Finance, Banking and Insurance (NIIT IFBI) – a subsidiary of NIIT Limited, and Bajaj Finserv, today announced a partnership to create a large-scale, job-ready pool of talent for the BFSI industry. Bajaj Finserv, through its flagship CSR Initiative BEYOND, aims to train over 10,000 graduates, especially firstgeneration graduates, every year across India. This collaboration will scale up the reach of Bajaj Finserv’s Certificate Program in Banking, Finance, and Insurance (CPBFI) through NIIT’s wide network across different parts of India.

Career

The programme is a customised training programme conducted by Bajaj Finserv for both undergraduates in their final years and graduates, especially first-generation graduates. Following this partnership, the programme – currently available to only students and alumni of Bajaj Finserv’s partner colleges – will now be accessible to freshers, both graduates and undergraduates across all states of India through NIIT’s reach and highly skilled BFSI trainer pool. Bajaj Finserv has till date trained over 20,000 graduates in more than 200 colleges in India.

Bajaj Finserv will bear a substantial part of the programme fees through its CSR Funds, thereby making the program available to students at a nominal fee. Learners who successfully complete this program will receive a certificate and will be provided with placement assistance both by Bajaj Finserv and NIIT.
