Our Graduate

"SP's Banking and Finance course was one of my best choices thus far. Here, I was offered just the right amount of everything from strong fundamentals to practical skills, market insights, hands-on experiences and many more. I was presented with the opportunity to explore the different aspects of the financial markets and I am grateful for that. This was the time to explore, and the course's strong hands-on culture, gave me the liberty to do so."
