• NSE Academy Limited names ALPHABETA certified partner for its online courses

    ALPHABETA’s immersive mobile app-based course in Equity Portfolio Management pioneers a revolutionary change in the teaching of finance


    MUMBAI, India and CHENNAI, India, Nov. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NSE Academy Limited (NAL) a wholly owned subsidiary of National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSEIL), has named ALPHABETA INC as a certified partner for online education. NAL currently offers certificate programs in extensive finance subjects in collaboration with select educational and financial institutions. Starting with a certificate course in Equity Portfolio Management, ALPHABETA will grow its offerings and will progressively deploy its courses to enhance the NAL product offerings.

    ALPHABETA is NAL’s choice due to the revolutionary nature of its inclusive pedagogical approach using an “active learning space” which makes the complex concepts of finance intuitively simpler for learners from diverse backgrounds who may lack the mathematics training that has traditionally been a prerequisite. The proprietary app (available on iOS, Android, Mac OS X, Windows) is targeted at graduate, undergraduate and high school students, investment managers, traders and wealth managers.

    Kirthi Ramakrishnan, President of ALPHABETA, said, “The partnership with the NAL is a major validation of ALPHABETA’s revolutionary pedagogy using data visualization and exploratory learning in a mobile-first, data-intensive, next-generation app environment. We believe that we are at the forefront of a generational shift in the teaching of finance aligned with the irreversible trends of democratization of investing opportunities and investing knowledge. Even as the platform becomes part of the core curriculum in top business schools around the world, it is institutions like NAL that will truly bring financial inclusion through mass adoption by the wider population and we are proud to be part of that solution.”

    Mr. Ravi Varanasi, CEO NSE Academy Limited, said, “The adoption of innovative learning methodologies has always been a priority at the NSE Academy Limited. As smart phone penetration increases, the interactive learning on mobile applications will enable imparting education on anywhere and anytime basis extending the barriers of reach and time. We are very excited to introduce this new concept with ALPHABETA, and believe that the immersive learning experience of the platform will revolutionize the learning of complex financial concepts.

    ALPHABETA mulls tie-ups for providing financial courses


    MUMBAI, NOVEMBER 21: ALPHABETA Inc, a New York-based new-age interactive education start-up providing courses on equity markets and commodities, is planning to tie up with leading business schools and financial institutions in India for financial courses. The company has recently partnered with the NSE Academy Ltd (NAL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Stock Exchange, for the same. NAL, that currently offers certificate programmes in extensive finance subjects in collaboration with select educational and financial institutions, will soon provide a certificate course in equity portfolio management through online, using data visualisation and exploratory learning.

    ALPHABETA’s plan is to introduce more such courses related to equity and stock market.

    ALPHABETA provides an inclusive pedagogical approach using active learning space which makes the complex concepts of finance intuitively simpler, said its President and Founder Kirthi Ramakrishnan.

    “Not many people invest in the stock market because they find it complex.

    “Our platform makes many of these courses look very simple with a lot of visual data and a very practical approach instead of going the theoretical way,” he said, adding anyone can become financially literate by studying this course.

    The online courses are available through a mobile app for anyone from high school students to investment managers, traders and wealth managers.

    Ramakrishnan further added that in countries such as India and Mexico only 2 per cent of the population has exposure to the stock market. “Our aim is to take this 2 per cent to 10 per cent in the next 8-10 years,” Ramakrishnan said, adding that the company is already talking to about six premier business schools for the financial courses. “The partnership with NAL is a major validation that data visualisation and exploratory learning in a mobile-first, data-intensive, next-generation app environment is very important.

    “We believe that we are at the forefront of a generational shift in the teaching of finance aligned with the irreversible trends of democratisation of investing opportunities and investing knowledge.”
