Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management (TSCFM), one of India’s premier management business schools and part of The Shahani Group of Institutions, is set to launch a special online batch of their Professional Diploma in Banking Program for underprivileged girls, on 8th March 2021 i.e. International Women’s day. The all-female batch is being created bearing in mind the social challenges some young Indian women encounter in engaging and interacting in a male-dominated environment.
Admissions will open on March 7, 2021 and the last day to apply for the course is 15th April 2021. The goal of launching the special banking course batch for women is to help them develop English communication and other soft skills, without feeling overwhelmed in a classroom setting where men may dominate class discussions. The school will provide placement support to the students, ensuring employment opportunities in leading companies like HDFC Bank, Kotak Bank, ICICI Securities etc.. Since banking and finance is a female-friendly industry in India, graduates can expect a large number of job opportunities. Additional guidance and counselling sessions will be held to assist the girls in making the best career decisions possible.
Dr. Akhil Shahani, Managing Director, Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management, Shahani Group, and CEO, ask.Careers, “We are honoured to be able to provide special banking course for the underprivileged women of our society, never before has there been a greater need for knowledge, information, and learning – especially for women. Last year, we noticed that, in mixed-gender classes, girls from certain socioeconomic backgrounds are often reluctant to engage adequately in class discussions or experiential learning because boys dominate the conversation. The all-women batch has been created to facilitate their better participation in the class without any hesitation. Such batches will empower girls to actively communicate and interact in a class and develop their confidence. With this, girls can avail complete training in a short time span, which will help them make the most of professional opportunities in future”
The initiative is in line with Shahani Group’s legacy of enabling increased participation of women in leadership roles in the industry and the community. This course aims to empower women across the world to engage in purposeful career development and take on leadership roles to lead change with more power and confidence. The goal of this Professional Diploma in Banking Program is to create a workforce of professionally trained women for nationalised, private and multinational banks.
