Here goes the call to all the number crunchers, all those wall street wannabes. When you talk finance, to put it simply, IIM Calcutta just cannot be excelled. The different courses take you through the ins and outs of audits and accounts. We make you value your assets, help you minimize the costs and plan the fund flow. At the end of the journey a company balance sheet would be worth a thousand words. An enabled corporate citizen you shall evaluate stocks, play around with the ratios and thus select your own cocktail of equity and debt instruments. As an empowered manager you shall acquire the power to turn-around any company.
