YES BANK has partnered with Manipal Academy of BFSI to launch ‘YES Professional Banker’ program, a one-year postgraduate diploma in banking for graduates who aspire to build a career in the banking and financial services industry (BFSI).
The Bank will provide education loans for the ‘YES Professional Banker’ Program to help students bear the program fees as per the Bank’s existing student loan eligibility criteria. Once the candidates complete the program, they will be awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Banking from Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), and the ‘YES Professional Banker’ certification from
YES School of Banking.
Diploma holders will be offered placements in suitable roles at the Bank with competitive compensation packages. On completing a predefined tenure with the Bank, provided they meet requisite performance levels, the entire program fee will be reimbursed.
Welcoming the development, Anurag Adlakha, Chief Human Resources Officer, YES BANK, said, “At a time when banking is undergoing revolutionary changes, the launch of the
‘YES Professional Banker’ Program with student funding arrangements will help nurture talented aspirants into highly skilled professionals in the sector. We are delighted to partner with Manipal Academy of BFSI to execute the program.”
