A full range of online training programmes now available
WSBI, in close collaboration with Spanish business school IEB and in association with the London School of Economics Executive Education LSE, has considerably increased its training offer to bankers and future financial service providers who wish to sustainably change the banking industry.
Executive Master in Responsible Banking
The Executive Master in Responsible Banking is a one-year online programme designed for bankers and future financial service providers who wish to sustainably change the banking industry. Provided by international experts from three major players – IEB, LSE and WSBI – in the banking and academic sectors, it delivers two specialisations, one in retail banking, the other in corporate banking. Online sessions and tutorials are organised every week. The programme foresees one week at LSE in London and additional optional study visits in Europe.
Students of the 2013 edition were very enthusiastic about the Master: they valued the methodology based on a practical approach to responsible banking, with case studies, tests, discussions and ongoing interaction with skilled international professors as fundamental elements of the learning process. Coaching sessions help students apply lessons learned.
“I have really enjoyed this program because I have learned the responsible approach to banking, mainly via fruitful interactions with professors and classmates. It reinforced my personal commitment to moving this industry towards the adoption of strong ethical standards and to increasing its contribution to financial inclusion and literacy. I strongly recommend this program to those professionals with a vocation and personal values to primarily serve their societies.” Fernando Ochoa-Castillo, Chief Economist, BancoEstado, Chile
“This course stimulates thinking towards a responsible approach to all banking activities. It also provides a fascinating up-to-date panorama of recent trends, activities, issues and achievements in banking, on a global scale, with the case studies as an integral part of the course.” Klaida Çekrezi (Eminaj), Manager, Project and Structured Finance Department, Banka Kombetare Tregtare, Albania
"The Master is becoming a faithful and global guide to understanding and meeting consumers’ and society’s expectations of banking’s social performance." Jose María Talavera, Senior Manager (Real State Dept./Headquarters), CAJA RURAL DE GRANADA, SC (Savings Bank), Spain
The one-year Executive Master in Responsible Banking begins 24 March 2014. The registration deadline is 17 March 2014.
Responsible Finance Management Programme
The online Responsible Finance Management Programme (RFMP) is a lighter version of the Master programme. Online sessions and tutorials are organised every other week by the same teachers and professors. It consists of a one-week session at LSE in London and additional optional study visits in Europe. This programme, like the Master, seeks to inspire bankers to implement the necessary cultural changes inside the banking and financial industry to win back client trust and gain a competitive advantage.
The Responsible Finance Management Programme begins 24 March 2014. The registration deadline is 17 March 2014

The Responsible Banking Advances Courses begin 24 March 2014. The registration deadline is 17 March 2014.
Responsible Banking Foundation Courses

The future of banking will depend on organisations behaving with integrity,
covering economic, financial, environmental, social and governance issues while respecting all stakeholders.
The aim of the above programmes is to accompany bank staff along this transformation path.
