IIT-M launches online course on biz accounting

CHENNAI: IIT-Madras Digital Skills Academy has launched an online only course on business accounting process with the objective to upskill and reskill students and professionals looking for a career in finance and accounting.

The course will be available all through the year, and interested candidates can enrol at any point of time in a year.

The Digital Skills Academy has partnered with ArthaVidhya, which is based in Bengaluru, to offer this programme, which is one-of-its-kind in this area. The course is completely online, interactive and ‘job oriented.’ It has been built with an innovative concept of Virtual Office, embedded in Artificial Intelligence-based Interactive Learning Management System (iLMS).

K Mangala Sunder, head, Digital Skills Academy, IIT Madras, said, “The course is designed to provide students with a simulated environment (Virtual Office), giving the students a real-life simulation of actual work environment throughout the course.”

Sunder said, “The Artificial Intelligence platform provides the students with a virtual corporate environment carrying out various financial transactions in real-time. This helps the students to obtain an experiential learning equivalent to about three months of actual corporate working experience and makes them job ready.”

The course is designed as per the job roles (qualification packs) of NASSCOM (IT – ITES Sector Skill Council) and has been certified by them.

All programmes under the Digital Skills Academy, IIT Madras, will be certification courses approved by the Centre for Continuing Education, IIT Madras, and learners who complete the programme will receive formal certificates from CCE (Centre for Continuing Education), IIT-Madras.
