CMT Association Collaborates With TAPMI Manipal As An Academic Partner

New York, NY & Mumbai, India (August 1, 2019) – The CMT Association is proud to announce its new partnership with T.A. Pai Management Institute Manipal through TAPMI’s inclusion in the CMT Association’s Academic Partner Program.

Selection for the CMT Association’s Academic Partner Program signifies TAPMI Manipal’s commitment to its students’ career readiness and applied learning. Institutions in the Academic Partner Program demonstrate academic rigor in financial courses ranging from quantitative methodologies to behavioral finance, as well as portfolio management and other key aspects of technical analysis.

With this partnership, the two institutions illustrate an innovative solution to the growing demand for student education and career preparedness, while advocating for the advancement of technical analysis in India. Technical analysis, which is a crucial part of investment and trading decisions, has evolved over hundreds of years. While modern technical analysis retains its roots in classical observations of market behavior, it extends beyond pattern recognition to employ groundbreaking quantitative methodologies and rules-based trading-system design and testing.

 “Students will have the opportunity to enroll in the CMT Program and learn the intricacies of technical analysis while preparing for their own career at a reduced fee,” said Alvin Kressler, CEO & Executive Director at the CMT Association. “This partnership between the CMT Association and TAPMI will ignite the spark of technical analysis in young minds and will also prepare them to take up new investment career opportunities at an early stage of their lives,” he added.

“I have worked with TAPMI and Professor Madhu, who will be leading this new partnership, since 2013 in various capacities,” said Joel Pannikot, Head of the recently-christened India liaison office of the CMT Association. "Among Indian business schools, they are arguably the most committed to creating infrastructure to provide the finance industry with job-ready professionals. The possibilities our Academic Partnership presents are limitless.”
