The Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT), an arm of the Reserve Bank of India, is offering a post-graduate diploma in banking technology (PGDBT).
The course is a full-time regular one-year programme that provides essential knowledge and practical inputs on technology adoption.
Interested candidates should submit their applications before June 23, as per details provided on the institute’s portal.
Referring to the benefits of the course for banks and students, AS Ramasastri, Director, IDRBT, said: “Technology is now a key driver for growth and expansion of banks. Applying newer technology to enhance customer convenience and ensuring its security is the biggest challenge for banks. In this context, banking technology specialists are in great demand.”
The demand for such a talent pool is growing and IDRBT launched the PGDBT in 2016 to cater to this demand, he added.
Banks and financial institutions, including HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Bandhan Bank, IDBI Intech Ltd and National Payments Corporation of India, have picked students of the first and second batches of PGDBT.
