How To Apply for the Programme


  • Finance for Decision Making Program at the IIMB was very insightful. It brought in a diverse set of participants from various industries along with entrepreneurs, a doctor, a photographer and a regulator under one roof. Discussions with the participants and faculty were of high quality.

    The program helped me to interpret complex financial reports using various ratios, helped me understand cost and to apply techniques that I learned during the program for better decision making.

    I would recommend this program to anyone who aspires for a leadership role as I believe that an understanding of finance is very important for success. I would also take this opportunity to thank the faculty program director for curating very thoughtful and relevant content.

  • Being from a non-financial background, this course has certainly instilled in me the art of having a different outlook while helping me make decision. It is a holistic program for understanding key concepts in detail, which are mandatory for a manager. Although it is a short-term online course, it provides us with the necessary opportunity for applying our learnings and thereby giving us a hands-on experience at finance.

  • First of all, I want to thank IIM Bangalore for organizing such a wonderful training session. It was absolutely a valuable learning experience. I have been in the Mining Industry for 6 six years and had hardly any opportunity to learn. Being from a non-finance background, many topics that were taught were completely new to me. But the efforts made by the faculty

    with a vast experience made all topics quite simple to learn. We also did project work and evaluated various financial aspects of different companies. Although, on-campus training was not possible, the virtual training sessions were excellent.
