The world of education is rapidly moving towards the platform of online education and it is gaining popularity among students like never before. The majority of the organizations in this sector are inclined towards providing post graduation courses in finance and technology for the students as the demand and financial benefit for the same is consummate. This leaves a handful of online training institutes that provide job relevant certification programs. In the year 2011, the founders of Dezyre realized the fact that traditional university curriculums are quite ineffective to make people job ready and there are very few online training institutes that are addressing this need. To fill this void, Binny Mathews and Omar Aasim co-founded Dezyre, an online academy that provides training in job related skills.
Dezyre offers various courses in finance such as Investment Banking and Financial Modeling, Diploma in Finance and Investment Banking, Basics of Business Finance, Certificate in Capital Market, Certificate in Microsoft Excel for Business Professionals, HR Professionals and Sales. Students can also take up certification programs in Basics of Tally.ERP 9 and Basics of Capital Market that are free of cost. The academy also offers a complete online package for the students; the knowledge seekers are always free to call their trainers through Skype to clarify their doubts and queries.
Unlike other players in the market, the academy enriched the application of its course contents with the help of enormous number of industry experts involved in the training courses. Currently, experts from Investment Banking giants Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan teach the investment banking courses at Dezyre. Students and working professionals that take up the courses also benefit from ex- bankers and professors of IIM Bangalore who share their first hand experiences. Hence, the founders proudly say that the content and training at Dezyre is frequently supported by a panel of approximately 620 industry experts who are working in investment banks and IIMs. "We reach out to the panel members before we start a new course to take note of the qualities that they would like to see in their new recruits and we aggregate these notes to make a better curriculum," says Binny Mathew.
Apart from skill-based training, the academy provides career counseling and resume review as a part of the course. Today, more than 42,000 students have taken up the online courses at Dezyre. With all the expertise and knowledge gained from the financial online education sector, the founders of Dezyre are looking forward to explore newer verticals in online education in the upcoming years. Dezyre is providing its students with an opportunity to improve their skills through their interactive courses and enhance their resumes to land their dream job.
