After creating waves in the banking and finance domain with its unique teaching and experiential learning methodology, TKWsIBF received a special recognition from the Incumbent Minister of Science & Technology, Dr. Harsh Vardhan in Delhi on Thursday. This high profile event organised by Business Sphere at Hotel Samrat in Chanakyapuri was graced by Mozes Tandung Lelating (Minister Counsellor, Republic of Indonesia) as the Guest of Honor. TKWsIBF was conferred the “Toppers in Banking Financial Education” award for its unmatched value addition and outstanding contributions in the field of banking and financial services to the community, society and nation at large.
Since 2002, TKWs Group has been committed towards improving student competencies through its training programs offered at its 14 learning centers and also in 550 cities via satellite in association with Hughes Telecom. What started with the vision of creating a knowledge centre of excellence for the banking sector has now become one of the most sought-after institutes offering government recognized Diploma and Degree courses for undergraduate and graduate level students with unmatched career prospects in the banking and finance arena.
It may be recalled, that this is the same institute that responded to the clarion call of PM Narendra Modi on 15th August by creating “BFSI Vision 2022”. The BFSI Vision 2022 is about making 5 common financial services accessible to every Indian by the 75th year of India’s independence. The institute brought together senior most bankers to create a framework to achieve the vision. The vision statement has been applauded by RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and endorsed by CMDs of leading banks and financial institutions.
Congratulating Prof Amit Goyal, the founding Director of the Institute, Dr Harsh Vardhan said “We need our institutes to channelize their efforts to the cause of Nation Building.” The institute has been working to groom next generation bankers using different Experiential Learning Techniques. It is initiatives like these, live projects and many other industry outreach activities that give handsome learning to students. The institute abhors the approach of rote learning. The flagship program of the institute is a 1 Year PG Diploma in Banking & Finance which aims at preparing students to become international bankers. After the program the students are placed in important roles with leading banks and financial institutions.
Serving as Director in TKWsIBF, Prof. Amit Goyal comes with 15 years of rich experience of working closely with industry leaders like ICICI, LIC, HDFC, etc. When asked about his frame of mind on being bestowed with the prestigious title he said, “ It is an absolute honor to be recognized and acknowledged by the best in the industry for your work. Our team takes great pride in being a part of the educational revolution in India. Awards like these serve as an incentive for putting in more effort and doing better, greater work. Thank you for firing our passion and helping us move towards attaining academic excellence in the field of banking and finance.”
