The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) announced the introduction of new eMasters degree programs. These cutting-edge online programs, including specialisations in climate finance, business finance, fintech, and quantitative finance, aim to prepare ‘future-ready’ finance professionals to meet the increasing demand for skilled talent within the finance sector.

The new offerings by IIT Kanpur come with a flexible duration of 1-3 years, making them accessible to a broader range of professionals looking to advance their careers. Notably, admissions to these courses will not require a GATE score, thereby widening access to a quality education from one of the country’s premier technology institutes.

The eMasters in Financial Technology and Management program is designed to merge traditional finance principles with the burgeoning field of fintech, providing participants with an in-depth understanding of how technology is reshaping the financial industry. Similarly, the quantitative finance and risk management program emphasises research and practical training to enhance risk management competencies.

Furthermore, the business finance program aims to equip professionals with advanced knowledge in finance and economics, preparing them to make strategic decisions in their careers. The climate finance and sustainability program addresses the urgent need for expertise in carbon management and ESG, offering specialised training that blends finance with environmental sustainability.

Administered by the Department of Management Sciences and the Department of Economic Sciences, these eMasters programs offer a blend of live interactive weekend classes and self-paced learning options. With a 60-credit curriculum designed to meet industry standards, the programs also provide a pathway for credit transfers towards higher education opportunities, such as MTech and PhD programs at IIT Kanpur, further emphasising the institute’s commitment to creating a seamless educational journey for its students.
