The Egyptian Banking Institute (EBI) was established under the Egyptian Law No. 78 in 1991 as the sole training arm of the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) to provide banking, financial and monetary training to Egypt’s banking professionals. Under this Law, the Institute was governed by a Board of Trustees, including the Governor of the CBE and the Institute’s Executive Director. In 2003, under the Egyptian Law. No. 88, the Institute was redefined as a separate entity with an independent budget and governed by a Board of Directors, headed by the Governor of the Central Bank of Egypt.
Since 2003, the Institute has experienced significant growth and development in terms of the size and diversity of its constituency, training facilities, internal resources and most importantly, its training services and products. Through the Institute’s longstanding reputation as a professional training provider, the Institute was able to effectively broaden its reach to the financial sector at large in the Arab Republic of Egypt and to the surrounding region, thereby achieving an integral component of the Institute’s newly revised mission and vision.
As part of its institutional goals EBI considers program development and improvement as a critical activity to its success. As such, the Institute’s core programming in banking and financial disciplines is augmented with an ever increasing demand for management, human resources, and other “soft” skills, including English for special purposes and information technology.
Additionally, through its extensive network of international and local professional relationships, the Institute is also able to provide its constituency with a variety of seminars, conferences and workshops presented by reputable experts and organizations in the financial and training fields, such as the Center for Financial and Economic Research and Studies (CFERS) and the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), on topics related to current trends, issues and activities affecting the national and global marketplace. Similarly, through international cooperation and partnerships with international training providers, such as the University of Wisconsin – Madison, Graduate School of Banking, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the European Bank Training Network (EBTN), EBI has provided its participants and internal staff with scholarship opportunities to study abroad and gain international experience.
The Institute is confident in its capability and experience to best serve its nation and regional community through its on-going efforts to heighten the awareness of industry benchmarks and the promotion of international standards throughout all financial sector activities. EBI values professionalism, ethical standards of conduct and the integrity of Egypt’s fiscal activities and believes their practice is paramount to the nation’s international acceptance.
