Chartered Institute of Bankers, Ghana
The Chartered Institute of Bankers, Gh - CIB Gh was registered in 1978 under the Professional Bodies Decree of 1973 (NRCD 143) with 30 professional members and 11 corporate members. Having successfully carried a diligent expansion programme, the Institute can now boast of 26 corporate members, 574 professional members and over 5,000 student members.
In 1980, the Institute started to strengthen its capacity to take over the organization of the Associateship Examinations from the London Institute by conducting the Stage 1 Examinations on its own. The localization process was completed in 1993. Currently, the Institute has embarked on a Compulsory Continuous Professional Development for its members and would soon start a first degree programme with Sheffield Hallam University.
The Institute serves as a professional body for banks and financial institutions with an aim to provide stimulus for the development of competent and more qualified human resources that will enable the banks to offer efficient and competitive services to meet modern-day sophisticated demands and satisfaction. Its course content and structure is streamlined along the requirements of Alliance of African Institutes of Bankers (AAIOB) for global recognition. CIB (Gh) is also a member of World Conference of Banking Institute (WCBI).
CIB Ghana’s mission is to develop fully the academic and professional potential of practitioners in the financial services sector and those seeking to be practitioners by a course of study in banking and financial services.
Their vision is to become the prime school for financial services education in Ghana and West Africa to produce outstanding, highly trained and honest bankers. This will be achieved through training, professional standards setting, research and development and advocacy.See more
