Course Description

At ISBF, the PGDF is the first of its kind in India as it offers two specialization options – wealth management and investment management. The wealth management track covers the curriculum of the internationally recognized Certified Financial Planning (CFP) and Chartered Financial Analysis (CFA) Level 1 programmes. The investment management track covers major elements of CFA Level 1 and 2 programmes. Both tracks equip ISBF students with necessary knowledge and skills to work across the entire landscape of the fast growing financial sector.

The one year programme is structured into 15 modules over three terms. Term I lays a solid foundation through financial economics, accounting, capital markets, financial analysis and corporate finance. Drawing upon this foundation, students then move to their chosen area of specialization in Term II – Wealth Management and Investment Management. Students are required to successfully complete each module and a research project for the award of the Post graduate Diploma in Finance.


Graduates or final year students from any discipline are encouraged to apply. An essential requirement for a candidate is to have a keen interest in applied finance and a desire to embark upon a career in financial services.

Candidates seeking admission should have good comunication skills, an ability to absorb new ideas quickly and a willingness to work hard. We do not assume prior knowledge of accounting, economics and finance but strong quantitative skills would be an added advantage.

Admission Procedure

The admission procedure comprises an admission test followed by personal interviews of selected candidates. Scores of CAT, MAT, XAT and GMAT are accepted and students with valid scores of these exams are exempted from our entrance test.
