NPCI partners with JBIMS to offer a Masters in Digital Payments program to its employees as part of the “Learn while you Earn” initiative

National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) collaborated with Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS) to co-create a Master in Management Studies (MMS) program in Digital Payments for its employees. Launched as part of NPCI’s “Learn while you Earn” higher education program, the first batch kicked off today with an inaugural session.

The one-of-a-kind specially curated program will integrate aspects of technology, finance, BFSI, and information and management system studies into a single Masters in Digital Payments specialization to meet varied industry requirements today. The program will serve as a platform to nurture the leaders of tomorrow who can manage the growing digital payments user base and bring more technological reforms to the financial ecosystem.

Being a hybrid program, employees will take classes on weekends and only spend one week on campus per semester, allowing them to learn while continuing to earn at NPCI. The program aims to enrich employees with a deeper understanding and knowledge of research methodologies while encouraging them to publish research papers and articles.

In addition, NPCI employees also have the opportunity to pursue super-specialization and further studies (Ph.D.) after completion of the master’s program.

Dr. Srinivasan R. Iyengar, Director of JBIMS, said: “We are excited to co-build this first-of-its-kind, specialist MMS program in digital payments for NPCI employees. Relevant to Employers and Participants We believe that MMS in digital payments will provide NPCI employees with the best opportunities to learn and realize their potential.

Dr. Kavita Laghate, Professor, JBIMS said: “At JBIMS, we continually strive to improve each program in terms of relevance, content and methods. We are thrilled to be part of this revolutionary MMS program in digital payments developed for NPCI employees.

Nishith Chaturvedi, Head of Human Resources and Administration at National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), said: “Creating learning opportunities is one of our core value propositions for employees and we are delighted to partner with a leading institute like JBIMS to co-create this Masters in Digital Payments program. We believe in “learning for all” and encourage our employees to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world. We hope this initiative will further inspire talented minds and help us in our mission to transform India’s digital payments industry.
