Course Overview


Finance is one of the fastest growing sectors in India and the shortage of skilled talent has led to a huge demand for finance professionals with management and analytical competencies. As such, upskilled professionals with professional credentials enjoy lucrative career prospects including better job opportunities, faster promotions, and accelerated mobility in career trajectories. 

The banking and financial services industry is turning its focus toward innovation to prepare for a future that will be increasingly driven by technological innovations, regulatory reforms, ongoing digital transformation, collaboration with FinTech, and the use of artificial intelligence and robotics. As Industry 4.0 consolidates in India, the banking and financial services sector will play a pivotal role in helping the nation attain its economic ambitions.

Financial statements provide the means to measure the performance of a company and its strategy. Today’s advanced technology increases the importance of expert financial analysis. IIM Lucknow’s Executive Programme in Applied Finance (EPAF) focuses on financial statement analysis by helping the participants to understand, analyse and use financial statements for making better decisions.
