M. M. A


KARACHI: In order to augment the number of quality bankers in local banking industry, the  Institute of Bankers Pakistan has (for the first time in the Pakistani banking industry’s history,) introduced E-Learning Program. This will facilitate those interested in learning about Treasury Branch Management, Risk Management, Presentation Skills and Information Technology.

According to the renowned banker Hussain Lawai who is Institute of Bankers’ Chief Executive,  people  no longer have to attend proper classes at the Institute of Bankers. They will be able to take online lectures from their offices and homes.

Under-training bankers will have to come to the Institute only on two specific days per week to take exams. He said even those living outside Karachi will be able to benefit from E-Learning.

Answering to a question Hussain Lawai told this program’s technology platform was formed by the Institute of Bankers at a cost of Rs. 2 crores.

Informing that in the last decade some 50,000 individuals have joined the banking industry of Pakistan, Hussain Lawai lamented, due to lack of professional training the quality of human resource in this field was getting worse. But he maintained that due to this E-Learning program aggravating quality  could get better.

Hussain Lawai further told that banking industry in Pakistan needed some five thousand professionally trained manpower. He said that Institute of Bankers was endeavoring to increase the number of professional bankers by means of various courses.

He informed that a number of  banks, including National Bank, have signed agreements with the Institute of Bankers in order to improve the quality of their human resource . 

Keeping in view the increasing growth of Islamic Banking, Institute has decided to commence eight to fifteen-day-long  Islamic course from 3rd week of November this year.
