ABOUT BSE Training Institute Ltd.:
The Bombay Stock Exchange Training Institute Ltd. (BTI) is the wholly owned subsidiary of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). BTI inherits from BSE the knowledge and insights into the capital markets industry, garnered over the past 135 years.
BTI has the distinct advantage of being at the centre of action – the financial hub of India, one of the worlds most rapid emerging markets. This has helped us provide insights into the unique functions of this world. Emerging markets such as the BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India, and China – can entice and intimidate. However, the first hand experience of our faculty and subject matter experts in dealing with the realities of this market, enables us to appreciate how organizations, entrepreneurs, and investors identify and respond to these new challenges and opportunities.
Hence, our programs are designed to help learners develop an actionable framework to delve into key aspects like:
- Identifying which market institutions are working, and which institutions are missing?
- Which parts of our business model can be adversely affected by these institutional voids?
- How can we build competitive advantage based on our ability to navigate institutional voids?
- How can we profit from the structural reality of emerging markets by identifying opportunities to fill voids, serving as market intermediaries?
Our commitment to being at the forefront of the current and evolving practice of business has led to programs that reflect the realities of the marketplace.
Case studies replicate actual business situations and are taught so that students must work together to make difficult decisions under typical management conditions, including a lack of complete information, complex tradeoff situations and time pressure.
For more than two decades, the BTI faculty have drawn on their passion for teaching, their experience in working with organizations worldwide, and the insights gained from their experience to educate professionals who have shaped the practice of business in financial markets not only in India but also many other countries around the world.
Our course design and development is firmly grounded in knowledge of business processes-in entrepreneurial companies and established firms unconstrained by the boundaries of academic disciplines.
