Mahindra Finance and Manipal Academy

Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services Limited (MMFSL), a Mahindra Group company and one of India’s major non-banking finance companies established a strategic alliance with Manipal Academy of BFSI, a top hiring and training college for BFSI professionals. This collaboration will provide a specialised business training programme named ‘Prarambh’ specifically for female candidates.

‘Prarambh’ is designed to provide women candidates with a path to jobs in the financial services sector while also equipping them with the required skills for professional advancement. It would begin with the position of Business Executive and provide industry-standard compensation.

The institute will design a 30-day online certification course for the selected students that will focus on essential components of sales and finance. A total of 40 applicants from the first batch (which began on February 5, 2024) will obtain a sales certification from the Manipal Academy of BFSI upon completion.

Manish Sinha, CHRO, Mahindra Finance, said, “At Mahindra Finance, we prioritise Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as key enablers for our success. We believe in creating equitable opportunities for women in our organisation to help build successful careers with us.
