Complete Details you should know about Manipal 1 Year PGDBF Course

1 comment
Hi Friends, I am Santosh Reddy Ganta. The main reason for writing this post is to bring awareness about Public sector Banks attached Manipal PG in Banking and Fnance course for its Probationary Officers.

I faced alot of difficulty in finding reliable information on this (both online and offline). So here I am sharing all the information i found post my final selection in ANDHRA BANK -Manipal Pg course for PO's. Hope this will be helpful for future aspirants. All the Best :)

Why Banks are recruiting POs through this channel ? ?
Banking sector has become too competitive these days and the ground level front-runners i.e junior scale officers have a larger role to play in its success.

Banks are looking foward for a candidate well versed in banking and finance .

It sounds like banks want tailor made material who are right on target from day 1. That's the reason for this selection.
