Bank Training Programs & Courses
PBS Training provides academic and corporate training using ProBanker software, a simulation program used for teaching the core principles of bank management. It is the global distributor of ProBanker for use in both academic classes and corporate training.
ProBanker is a web-based program where participants work in teams to manage a bank and maximize market share, income and stock price. Each team inputs decisions every quarter related to deposits, loans, bonds, and capital. The variables include interest rates, advertising expenses, purchases and sales of bonds and certificates of deposits. After each simulation, the results are reviewed and based on the expected responses of their competitors, new inputs are entered by teams for the following quarter.
The rapidly evolving financial services sector in the last three decades has produced an increasing array of products and services offered by financial institutions. Managers have to fully understand the strengths, weaknesses and interdependence of their decisions and learn to deploy them in a comprehensive and innovative manner. ProBanker simulation provides a rich learning experience by allowing participants to lever the basic instruments of banking in a real word environment characterized by change, uncertainty and competition.
