I am an engineering graduate currently working as Project Manager in an IT company in the Finance domain. The post graduate course in Banking has given me knowledge and skill as per industry standards. With facilities like online booking for exams can enrol and study without affecting my current job. Symbiosis has worldwide recognition which will help me throughout my career.
