A 12-month post graduate diploma programme will be offered by United Bank of India (UBI) in collaboration with NIIT Institute of Finance Banking and Insurance Training (IFBI), one of the many subsidiaries of NIIT Ltd.
According to a recent UBI and NIIT press release, the course has been designed for newly hired probationary officers and will be offered at NIIT University. It will broaden the skill set of the candidates and will prepare them for their tasks.
