|Company Name :||Miles Professional Education|
|Year of Establishment :||2011|
Miles Professional Education is the largest provider of US CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and CMA (Certified Management Accountant) classroom training in India.
Miles Professional Education was started in 2011 by Varun Jain CPA, CMA, with the vision to provide a better career path to accounting and finance students and professionals in India, add to their knowledge base, enhance their credibility and give them a global perspective. To begin with, Miles Professional Education started classroom training sessions for the internationally acclaimed CPA course in India. Gradually, Miles established offices and training centres in 8 cities across the country including Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.
In late 2013, Miles identified the CMA coursework and understood the innate positive characteristics to the course including global recognition, ease of entry and single-level 2-exam structure that can be completed within a duration of less than 6 months. Thereafter, Miles entered into an official tri-party agreement with IMA (Institute of Management Accountants), US, and Wiley, to offer CMA training across the Indian subcontinent as IMA’s official partner using official IMA-licensed Wiley CMAexcel Learning System.
For both CPA and CMA, Miles uses its own proprietary study material coupled with Wiley resources. Miles also has a tried and tested training delivery model with a focus on classroom interactivity, concept-focused notes, annotations and highlighting and significant importance is given to practice questions both in the classroom and post-class sessions.
Miles has a team of qualified and experienced faculty members who guide and train students through the entire coursework, thereby, enabling a strong connect between the teacher and students. Miles also has a dedicated student relations team that ensures that the candidates are supported with all the logistics and formalities involved, and are also supported with placements with MNCs after they achieve their certification.
Miles has also been involved in a lot of promotional activities for CPA and CMA including introductory sessions, awareness campaigns and presentations or seminars across multiple colleges, universities and corporates across India.
In addition to the above, Miles is also looking at successfully launching many more cities for its classroom training sessions and establishing centres across the globe in the near future.
As part of its contribution to the society, Miles Professional Education has also started a corporate social responsibility initiative for education of underprivileged children.
|Name :||Varun Jain|
|Qualification :||CPA, CMA|
|Designation :||CPA, CMA|
A budding entrepreneur, a seasoned academician and a visionary - Varun Jain, CPA, CMA, is the Founder and National Instructor of Miles Professional Education, which is the largest provider of CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and CMA (Certified Management Accountant) classroom training in India.
After clearing his under-graduation in commerce, Varun joined Deloitte Financial Advisory Services in the Valuation team. It was at Deloitte that he came to know of the CPA course and immediately decided to pursue it.
After passing his CPA exams in 2007, he received an offer from Morgan Stanley Investment Banking division in Mumbai, naturally with a multi-fold hike in paycheck. Working there with a team comprising of CA’s and MBA’s, he realized the value-addition the CPA course had given him. Not only did it reward him with international credentials in record time but it also enlightened him with knowledge of accounting and financial concepts which he applied on his day-to-day work. He was rated amongst the highest-performing bankers on the floor, and in just 18 months, he had created his way to join the Morgan Stanley team of real estate investment bankers in London - a dream come true for most CA’s and IIM-passouts and definitely a milestone in his career.
However, he did not go to London or to Dubai, where he had an offer from another global investment bank. He realized that commerce graduates in the country deserve more than what they are acknowledged for, and tried to analyze whether it is redential or knowledge that is holding them back. He said both, and thereupon started his journey to create Miles, a CPA review course in India with a CPA instructor, handwritten course materials and classroom teaching to get to the heart of what Indian CPA candidates really need to know to successfully clear the Uniform CPA Examinations and earn their CPA designation.
Miles Professional Education started with training centres in Hyderabad and Mumbai, which soon expanded to 8 cities across the country. In 2014, Varun was instrumental in Miles’ partnership with IMA (Institute of Management Accountants), US, and Wiley to become the “official” training provider of CMA in India using official IMA-licensed Wiley CMAexcel Learning System. With its foray into CMA training, Miles has been able to reinforce it’s position as the leading provider of high-quality classroom training in India for US professional certifications in accounting and finance like CPA and CMA.
At Miles, Varun has successfully trained hundreds of students for the CPA and CMA exams. He has created valuable training videos which are used as an important tool by local instructors to conduct CPA and CMA training across India. He is undoubtedly India’s favorite CPA and CMA instructor.
In his leisure time, Varun enjoys playing squash and basketball. An enthusiastic and articulate orator, Varun has been part of multiple debates, discussions and conferences all along his career journey. And, as the face of Miles today, he is truly an inspiration to many!
