International Programme in Banking and Finance (Focus: Credit management and International trade financing)


The National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) is a premier academic-cum-training institute for providing research, training and consultancy services to the banking industry and financial institutions both in India and abroad. The Institute was established in 1969 as an autonomous body by the Government of India and is supported by the Reserve Bank of India, Commercial Banks and Financial Institutions in India. The Institute aims at promoting professionalism in the management of banks and other financial institutions by carrying out the following functions: – Imparting training and education to bankers both in general and functional management areas. – Conducting fundamental and applied research on problems concerning the banking industry – Providing consultancy and other advisory services to the industry in their problem solving endeavours.

After reaching 3.1 percent in both 2017 and 2018, global growth is expected to decelerate over the next two years. Amid moderating international trade and tightening global financing conditions, growth in emerging market and developing economies (EMDEs) is projected to plateau, reaching 4.7 percent in 2019 and 2020, up from 4.5 percent in 2018. However, credit growth remains curtailed not only on account of slow economic recovery but also because of the growth of non-performing assets in the aftermath of the downturn. Financing of international trade has been equally stressed in this scenario of lackluster global demand and heightened risk perceptions. Banks and financial institutions have an important role to play in this context to support the endeavors of enterprises by strengthening the provision and delivery of credit and trade finance services.
In this context the Institute is offering this programmes to enable executives of banks and financial institutions to effectively provide credit and trade financing services to clients. The programme will focus on developing skills for rigorous credit appraisal, effective credit monitoring and NPA management. This will be supplemented by a comprehensive knowledge and operational guidelines on mechanisms of financing of imports and exports.
Lectures, case studies and discussions will be employed to make the programme highly participative in nature.
