In the world of business, knowledge is the only capital that cannot be lost. Investment in education guarantees long-term profit. Aware of a need for constant improvement, BBI Bank established the BBI Academy. We organize more than 40 seminars every year to educate our employees. Lecturers and instructors are experts and university professors with worldwide recognition. For example, Nobel Prize Laureate, Professor Muhammad Yunus was a BBI Academy lecturer.
Primarily founded for the education of BBI employees, BBI Academy and its prestigious lecturers also attract domestic economists and conventional bankers. The focus of BBI Academy is education in Islamic economics and banking, the fastest growing segment of global finance. The popularity of Islamic finance was driven into focus by the global economic crisis in 2008 that also impacted Bosnia and Herzegovina. For this reason, BBI Academy seminars have been attended by representatives of Banking Regulatory Agencies and the Central Bank of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
BBI Academy also introduces principles of ethical banking—the foundation of Islamic finance—to professionals from Southeast Europe’s banking sector and those who prefer such principles in banking. The impressive growth of Islamic banking and finance globally has opened a new space to employ young professionals educated in this area. BBI Academy s the best way to enter the ethical world of Islamic finance.
