This Program is an effort to bridge that gap. The program will train students and impart skills giving them an added advantage over their peers which we believe will play a pivotal role in securing for them a bright future in banking and financial institutions”.

    Commenting on this initiative, Brig. (Dr.) R. S. Grewal, Vice Chancellor, Chitkara University, said,, “We at Chitkara University always try our best to provide students the cutting edge that gives them something extra and differentiates them from others. The new programme will give students the chance to be better prepared for the job and be industry ready professionals right from day one. I hope our students take advantage of it and are able to benefit from it.”
