Course overview:

How should banks reassess their strategies after the global financial crisis? What are the strategic implications of the final Basel III (Basel IV) regulations on capital and liquidity? How will big data and digital banking change the future of banking? How to sustain revenue growth?

It will focus on the global reassessment of the financial strategic canvas with the emergence of new players such as digital disruption, Fintech and TechFin; new tools including robots and blockchain; the fast-changing regulatory environment; new issues such as sustainability and the millennial challenge; and rising macro uncertainty such as financial fragility and COVID-19.

End of the Workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
