Review of Timespro Banking Course

Timespro Banking Course

Times of India has launched a banking course targeting fresh graduates.

This course though can give understanding of banking operations and processed but for sure is not a replacement of a professional qualification.




Student looking to build a long term career should focus on more structured courses like CA, CFA or CIMA.

Review Summary:

  1. Timespro banking course is a good course for getting knowledge of banking operations and process. It can certainly give edge to a candidate in comparison to only graduates.
  2. 6 month duration diploma course can never be a replacement of a professional qualification and thus may be only a short term solution for the students looking to get a job.
  3. Fees @ Rs. 85,000 seems to be quite high, this being a short term course.
  4. Certification is given by Times of India group, which will be valid only for the banks with which TOI group has tieups.
