NCFM Certifications

About NSE Academy

We conduct financial education workshops through NSE Academy to develop a new generation investor.

To introduce more first-time investors to the Indian markets and attract them to our exchange, our outreach, advertising and expansion initiatives seek to transform India’s strong culture of saving into an “equity culture”. We plan to intensify our outreach and advertising programs directed at younger Indians through our wholly-owned Subsidiary, NSE Academy, which promotes financial literacy as a necessary life skill. NSE Academy’s initiatives, including partnerships with state and national school boards and schools, interactive courses on personal finance and certification programs, teach school children, homemakers and other non-finance professionals the value of investing, provide an introduction to the Indian capital markets and help to develop new market professionals.
