The 64th batch of the diploma will be spread over 80 sessions and held thrice a week from 6-8 pm.
The curriculum will consist of five modules, case studies, guest lecturers to be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The course will impart in-depth knowledge on overseas markets, marketing methods, documentation, finance, insurance, shipping, and logistics as well as importing goods from other countries, foreign exchange, and regulations pertaining to exports and imports.
Participants will be assigned projects along with viva voce to gauge the application aspects of the modules studied. The course assumes significance in the backdrop of India’s merchandise exports growing at 197 per cent in the month of April.
The policy and procedures imbibed in the curriculum would help participants to be a key stakeholder in the foreign trade segment in the years to come.
