Regional Banking Training Center

The International Banking Institute (IBI) in Panama is aimed at training professionals in banking for Latin America.

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Panama seeks to become the education hub for the region's banks, where bankers from across Latin America could come to specialize in administration and management of a bank and expand their knowledge in recent finance programs and other related branches.

The Institute signed an agreement with the Graduate School of Banking at the University of Louisiana, to form high-level professionals through courses and seminars on credit management, based on a simulation model created by 14.755 executives and more than half a century of experience in advanced studies in financial matters.

The first leadership seminar was given with participation of senior management professionals from the banking system. Within a week the simulation model provided students the decision to compensate a large number of internal and external forces such as competition and economic and regulatory constraints.
