Course outline

The diagram provides a pictorial summary of the 12-month program for this graduate level course. Working closely with employers, we will train apprentices across the main areas of the wholesale banking industry. The objectives of this programme are:

§

To provide an integrated, coordinated and effective training programme

§

To embed the employer’s culture into the approach and examples used

§

To encourage interaction between students, teamwork, and how to facilitate the building of a network across cultural and business divisions

§

To ensure a sound knowledge of fundamental concepts

§

To give delegates the ability to apply theory to practice – to fix knowledge in delegates’ minds and to build solid foundations to support later learning

§

To introduce the range of fixed-income, equity, and commodity products, their uses and applications

§

To present a clear explanation of derivative products, their benefits and risks

§

To demonstrate how banks apply the concepts and products to their business

§

To ensure that all concepts are put into immediate practice, using simulation and intensive interactive case studies, to consolidate the learning process

Each module features frequent quizzes, plus a detailed end-of-module examination. We will track delegates’ progress through the modules, plus their scores in end-of-module examinations, to ensure that everyone has successfully completed the preparatory work. Any delegates falling behind on their pre-course preparation will receive automated emails reminding and encouraging them to keep up progress.

"This simulator gave the basic understanding of how trading is done. Even though it was not real money being used, one still had an adrenalin rush for the effects on our positions."
