Students who clear the online test would be certified by the Arth Centre of Excellence in ‘Finance Essentials’ and will be awarded a certificate of successful completion.


In addition, the course also has an optional internship/ live project (work from home or college and flexible hours). This will help you to apply the concepts learnt in this course to real-world situations and problems. You can schedule this based on your availability. Post successful completion, you will get a certificate of internship/ live project completion by the Arth Centre of Excellence.
