Eligibility Criteria and Admission Process

IFMR has its flagship course in Finance. It offers specializations in Financial Engineering, Finance, Marketing, HR and Data Science. If you are a pro-finance person and want to make your career in Financial Engineering or Finance, this is the best in the nation (literally). Although, I won't say the case is same with Marketing or other fields offered here.
