Battle of the Banks

The Battle of the Banks Online Bank Management Competition is an action based online learning tool for young bankers across Africa.

The aim of the competition is to educate Africa’s young bankers on how to best manage a bank’s risk through gaining insight into how the different areas of the business interact to enhance overall business and financial performance, and how key macroeconomic indicators impact the decision-making process in a bank. Participants are exposed to the challenges of risk management strategies, corporate governance, and business ethics.

The course is unique, with the simulated environment and competition element encouraging Africa’s Young Bankers to get involved, learning from the online training workshops, and interacting with their colleagues in their quest for knowledge, and to lift the title of Africa’s best young Bankers.
