IIF Programmes have been designed innovatively with curricula at par with MBA of internationalDr J.D Agarwal standards based on Indian & international experiences and the need of Indian Industry. These are designed to reap the fruits of first rate education and to meet the challenges of exciting years that lie ahead. IIF programmes have high standards, intellectually stimulating, analytical and have practical bias.

The success of IIF programmes in terms of total personality development, an excellent placement record, alumni working at senior positions and international recognition of our work have fostered confidence and motivated us to continue to work with a missionary zeal. IIF's distinguished and committed faculty, world class academic infrastructure and national and international, industrial and academic linkages provide a rare opportunity and conducive atmosphere for learning.

We conceived the seed of Business Finance Education in India as far back as 1987, much before the current developments in the field of finance, both in academic and business world. We started teaching Finance to working managers through distance learning mode and continuously strengthened the course contents, programme structure, teaching methodology nd developed research base through interaction with practising managers and academicians for more than ten years before offering the full time regular programme in Business Finance.

We are committed to impart high quality education and to contribute in the process of nation building.

I invite you to consider joining this institute for an excellent education and a successful & rewarding career
