The prestigious professional designation, Professional Banker, is aimed at everyone working in banking, including those who work in or aspire to work in roles with management responsibilities. It broadens and deepens your knowledge of the practice of banking, customer experience management and, particularly, credit risk management.
Those who become a Professional Banker will be well equipped for a management career in banking, as they will have industry-specific knowledge, a highly marketable and transferrable skill set including decision making, problem-solving, communication and analytical skills, practical experience and a deep understanding of the ethical issues and professional values which underpin banking.
