CRISIL Certified Analyst Programme 2018

CRISIL Certified Analyst Programme


The CRISIL Certified Analyst Programme (CCAP) is a two-year intensive work-cum-study course aimed at developing world-class finance professionals for analyst roles in CRISIL and industry at large.

The programme is run by CRISIL with the India Institute Of Management, Calcutta, as the Academic Partner, and Bennett, Coleman & Co Limited (Times Professional Learning Division) as the Recruitment and Learning Delivery partner. The Batch 12 of CCAP beginning July 2018 will see two prestigious courses being delivered to provide world-class content to participants. Participants will begin with an 18-month academic program with IIM Calcutta leading to the award of Post Graduate Certificate in Financial Analysis (PGCFA). In the last semester, participants will complete an online course on ‘Innovation’ from Stanford University, US.

All successful participants from the PGCFA program will receive alumni status from IIMC Alumni Executive Education. 

CCAP has been designed keeping in mind domestic and global business needs, and after thorough analysis of the curricula of MBA, CA, CFA and FRM programs.The unique format combines work assignments on live projects with classroom learning and interactive workshops, equipping participants with exceptional financial and business skills. The learning and growth path of participants is closely monitored to ensure exposure to opportunities that will facilitate career progression.

The programme signs off with a grand convocation ceremony. Some of our esteemed past speakers have been General Ved Prakash Malik (former Chief of Indian Army) and Maj D P Singh (ex Indian Army, India’s First Blade Runner). We call CCAP ‘the National Defence Academy of CRISIL’ not without a reason. We believe we are investing in future CEOs when we onboard CCAPians.    

The programme offers selected candidates an opportunity to be employees of CRISIL from Day One with an attractive compensation package.



MD & CEO’s Message

Congratulations on taking an important step towards a rewarding career in financial services.

As you would know, the financial services industry is central to the development of any economy. It continuously needs highly talented individuals to address the complexities of an ever-changing market, and to drive innovation.

CRISIL has been at the epicentre of financial evolution over the past 30 years, having delivered independent opinions, actionable insights and solutions, and in the process become a global, agile, analytical organisation.

Today, it is India’s foremost provider of ratings, research, and policy advisory services with over 100,000 clients in India, the US, the UK, Asia and Africa.

Coming to the CRISIL Certified Analyst Programme (CCAP), it has been conceptualised to groom world-class financial analysts.

A work-cum-study programme, CCAP stands apart owing to its unique methodology, innovative academic curriculum, on-the-job training, assured placement at CRISIL, and career-furthering opportunities.

In the twelfth year of the program, I am delighted to share that we are making CCAP even more meaningful by associating with IIM Calcutta, which will provide a Post Graduate Certificate in Financial Analysis (with IIM Calcutta Executive Education Alumni Status) to every candidate on successful completion.

In addition, all participants will need to complete a course in innovation from the Stanford University.

That’s a unique combination of world-class, multi-dimensional content to prepare the leaders of tomorrow.

Over the years, CCAPians have proved their mettle within and outside CRISIL with their knowledge, analytical ability, understanding of market complexities and business acumen.

If you think you have the passion to excel, have a fundamental understanding of finance, and the drive to fast-track your career, you are ready for the CCAP journey.

So join us in our mission of making markets function better. I am sure it will be a decision you will always be proud of.

I wish you the very best for the selection process and look forward to having you on board.
