National Institute of Bank Management PG in banking & finance

Post-Graduate Programme in Banking and Finance
Admission 2009 – 2011 (Batch VII)
Established in 1969 as an autonomous institution by the Reserve Bank of India in consultation with the Government of India, NIBM is the apex institution for research, training and consultancy in banking and finance. NIBM has earned its pride of place not only in the Indian Financial System but also in the International arena. NIBM has its own campus with all modern educational, institutional and residential facilities. The library with more than 65000 books and 350 journals and periodicals is one of the greatest attractions for the knowledge seekers.

Going by consistent 100 percent placement record of the earlier one-year PGPBF students in major public sector, new generation private sector and foreign banks and extremely positive feedback from the banking & financial services community, PGPBF is moving over to two-year format with enhanced inputs and deeper specialization in Banking & Finance.

Two-Year full time Residential Programme for Careers in
Banking and Financial Services Industry

Eligibility Criteria for Post-Graduate Programme in Banking and Finance (PGPBF)
The candidate must hold a Bachelor's Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA, of any of the Universities incorporated by an act of the central or state legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an act of parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under Section 3 of UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India. The Bachelor's Degree or equivalent qualification obtained by the candidate must entail a minimum of three years of education after completing higher secondary schooling (10+2) or equivalent. The basis of computing the percentage obtained by the candidate in the bachelor's degree would be based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the degree. In case of the candidates being awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the equivalence would be based on the equivalence certified by the university/institution from where they have obtained bachelor's degree. In case the university/institution does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by NIBM by dividing obtained CGPA with the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the resultant with 100.

Candidates appearing for the final bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification examination can also apply. Such candidates must produce a certificate from the Principal/Head of the Department/Registrar/Director of the University/ Institution certifying that the candidate has obtained 50% marks or equivalent based on latest available grades/marks. Such candidates, if selected, will be allowed to join the programme provisionally only if they submit a certificate latest by June 30, 2009 from the Principal/Registrar of their college/institute (issued on or before June 30, 2009) stating that they have completed all the requirements (the results may, however, be awaited) for obtaining the bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification on the date of issue of the certificate. Their admission will be confirmed only when they submit the mark sheet and a certificate of having passed the bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification referred to in the certificate issued by Principal/Registrar of their college/institute. The deadline for submission of the mark sheet and the certificate is December 31, 2009. Non-fulfillment of this condition will automatically result in the cancellation of the provisional admission. NIBM would not allow any candidate to join the programme in case the candidate is unable to complete all the requirements for a bachelor degree on or before June 30, 2009. NIBM would also not offer admission to any candidate after June 30, 2009.
