Banking Management Program ( BMP)
 
Programme Overview
 


The banking sector is adversely shocked from the 2008–9 global financial crisis (GFC).  Many banks closed doors and were out of business, a large number received government bailouts. The lessons learnt from this global financial crisis triggered innovation, creativity and reinvention in the banking.


The current economic climate is still volatile. Globally, many economies are fragile and weak to sustain the growing needs of its population. This has resulted in unequal economic development in the Third World. These situations have created volatile and explosive political situations in many countries. Political leaders and banks are not spared of the wrath. 


However, I think it’s important to remember that the GFC didn’t itself cause these sorts of problems in the banking sector – it simply exposed them. Many of the issues are the result of banking practices that go back years, and so the vulnerabilities were already there.


What’s more, the events that led up to the GFC are remarkably similar to those that preceded other, earlier financial crises. Can it really be possible that each time there is a crisis, no one understood the risks? Looking back, we know that is not true. Many people in different financial institutions, as well as others, were raising concerns. So now, a key issue that banks must face is how do we ensure that we make better decisions?
