KPMG India and NIIT announced to launch the KPMG NIIT Finance Academy in India to build new skills and talent in the finance sector. The academy proposes to offer programs in finance to fresh graduates and experienced finance professionals, to address new skill requirements that digital transformation has brought in the finance sector.
According to KPMG International’s recently released ‘Future Ready Finance Survey 2019′ report, future finance teams will not only require traditional finance competencies but also process management and exceptional management skills to administer digitally-enabled processes. The finance sector will also need digital finance experts and data scientists to analyse internal and external data to provide critical insights to the business.
The academy will be located at NIIT’s Gurgaon centre and most of the classes will be conducted there. However, based on client requests, some business to business (B2B) programs may be conducted at client locations. The academy will also offer customized modular programs for companies as per their requirement. KPMG believes that this finance academy will aid in creating a large pool of industry-ready talent who are ready to meet the needs of the finance functions of the future.
