I strongly believe everything in this world starts with an experiment. I am extremely happy that I was a part of this programme. It allowed me to discuss the actual problems I faced at work with my professors and colleagues to arrive at the best possible solution, thereby bridging the gap between theory and practice. Achin Biyani - Batch 2007-09, Manager, CRISIL Infrastructure Advisory

Finance, as a field, cannot be learnt but needs to be practiced along with theoretical inputs. CCAP provided me the best platform to blend the theoretical knowledge that I gained in the classes with first-hand practical experience. Safina Ali - Batch 2008 -10, Senior Credit Analyst, CRISIL Global Analytical Centre CCAP, a game changing work-cum-study model gave me, an engineer, not only conceptual knowledge of finance but also wide exposure of its practical aspects and real-world applications. Interacting with fellow participants, who came from diverse backgrounds, had distinct thought processes and were working with various businesses of CRISIL, has been aiding me immensely as I nurture my financial skills, enhance my analytical capabilities and continue to grow from strength to strength in both my professional and personal lives. Siddarth Mokkapati - Batch 2009-11, Research Analyst, CRISIL Research CCAP is the ideal link between theory and practice. This two year fast track course enabled me to work full-time, enjoy the lectures conducted by top professors and industry experts, leading to a focused career path. The working atmosphere in CRISIL assisted me in applying what I learnt in classroom while dealing with the complexities and dynamics of working in a team. The diverse mix of high-potential students added exponentially to the learning curve through intellectually stimulating discussions. Gowrishankar - Batch 2010-12, Research Analyst, CRISIL Global Research & Analytics CCAP has given me an opportunity to understand the operations of a consultancy. In CRISIL Infrastructure Advisory, we provide financial and management consultancy to clients across sectors like urban, transport, healthcare etc. I contributed to client interactions which has been a great learning experience. Namit Chugh - Batch 2011-13, CCAP Associate, CRISIL Infrastructure Advisory
