IIT Madras launches online course on Business Accounting Process built around an AI platform

The Digital Skills Academy of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras has launched a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform-based course called Business Accounting Process.

Students will be able to take this online course throughout the year. The objective is to upskill and reskill students and professionals looking for a career in finance and accounting.

Digital Skills Academy has partnered with ArthaVidhya, a Bengaluru-based institution, to offer this one-of-a-kind interactive and job-oriented online course. Its unique feature is the Virtual Office, embedded in the AI-based Interactive Learning Management System (iLMS).

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

“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,” Sunder added.

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

The general features of this course have been reviewed by Prof M. Thenmozhi of the Department of Management Studies, IIT Madras, who is also a former director of National Institute of Securities Markets, under the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), Mumbai.

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