Knowledge Assimilation Groups (KAG) are self-study groups that provide members with a forum to discuss, share and assimilate knowledge about the Banking and Finance industry with the overarching goal of encouraging and directing potential talent to specific verticals of Banking and Finance.
KAG is the engine to provide opportunities to enhance knowledge and attain practical readiness for the corporate world of banking and finance. The institute provides an environment that is conducive to learning and assimilating knowledge. Going further, these students would engage in research and innovation with the objective of bringing in additions to the knowledge base and promoting a culture of sharing such knowledge through publications. Some of the focus areas of the KAGs are Investment Banking, Derivatives KAG, Corporate Finance, Foreign Exchange KAG and Equity Analysis etc.
The Study Circles are forums to guide students for certifications and professional examinations like GARP (FRM), CFA and NISM etc. The students are mentored by industry experts and certified professionals in the respective fields of specializations.
