The Executive Master in Responsible Banking is a one-year programme designed for bankers and future financial service providers who wish to sustainably change the banking industry. Organised by three major international players in the banking and academic sectors it delivers two specialisations, one in retail banking, the other in corporate banking. Each chapter is analyzed from a responsible management perspective emphasising the bank's economic role and its impact on social welfare and the environment.

The Executive master's online modular set up is enriched with local study visits to banks and academies in order to illustrate the content and facilitate professional exchanges. Coaching sessions are planned to reinforce the Executive master's course insights. Programme accreditation ensures the highest quality of instruction.

Responsible banking encompasses a strong commitment by the banks to sustainable development and requires them to address corporate social responsibility as an integral part of its business activities.

Responsible banking principles include:
  1.  Fair and transparent corporate governance,
  2.  Fair and clear relations with customers
  3.  The provision of useful and appropriate products and services that improve the financial well being of customers.
  4.  Responsible investment through the integration of environmental, social, governance (ESG) and ethical issues into financial analysis and decision-making,
  5.  The promotion of financial accessibility and inclusion,
  6.  The promotion and provision of financial education policies and instruments.
  7.  Environment - friendly business,
  8.  Making a responsible contribution to the community,
  9.  Being a responsible employer through the application of fair and equal treatment to all staff
  10.  Contribution to financial stability
Responsible banking emphasises the bank's primary socio-economic role as a provider of sustainable welfare to both the citizen and the economy.

The Executive master's objective is to enable the student to influence the industry's future and contribute to making positive change a sustainable reality.

The Executive master's modules include classic and current business theories with recent business cases to teach students how to more effectively manage and lead complex banking organisations in today's competitive business environment. The programme includes study visits to banks in order to see how responsible banking is practically integrated into a bank's strategy and operations. The coaching sessions are there to help the student as an individual, to analyze the environment and the realistic options to successfully transform banking practices into more responsible ones.

The student will acquire and develop skills in Executive master disciplines and a wide range of specialities crucial to the success of banking and finance professionals.

As an individual, the student will
  •  improve the decision-making and performance;
  •  gain a better understanding of corporate thinking and culture;
  •  acquire a holistic approach towards people, processes and technology.
As a professional, the student will
  •  gain comprehensive knowledge of specialised areas in banking and finance;
  •  learn to efficiently manage bank risk;
  •  develop customer-centric strategies and policies;
  •  develop a new bank management culture;
  •  acquire the current best responsible banking practices;
  •  analyze the main conflicts of interest in different banking business lines.
The programme was created in partnership with:
-The World Savings Banks Instituteand the European Savings Banks Group (WSBI-ESBG), leading providers of training and consultancy services to the banking sector in emerging and transitioning economies since the early 1990s.
-The Instituto de Estudios Bursatiles (IEB), which is affiliated with the Universidad Complutense, sponsored by the Madrid Stock Exchange, and the current leader in financial training in Spain and Latin America, counting among its clients the main Spanish and Latin American financial institutions (banks, saving banks, pension fund managers, stockbrokers, etc.)

And in association with:
-The London School of Economics (LSE), the global leader in the study of economics, law and European studies, demonstrated by its 16 Nobel Prize winners and 34 past or present world leaders who have studied or taught at LSE.

The most innovative aspect of the On-line Executive Master programme is the method used: firstly, the students will have an academic tutor in all modules, whose responsibility it will be to follow up each of the students, introduce practical cases, answer the questions posed by students through on-line tutorials, etc... Students will also have detailed study documentation, as well as numerous spreadsheets which will be kept on the virtual platform so that students can work with them from wherever they are studying.

Studying online is becoming so popular that many well known academic institutions are launching their own online courses. It is a development that coincides with the growing accessibility of high quality online video and receivers such as iPads and smart phones. Online courses also offer convenience, flexibility, and cost advantages. They allow you to study anytime, anywhere. Costs can also be easier to handle because there is no need to commute or quit your job. The lack of interactivity that is often considered a disadvantage has been addressed with innovative methodology and the latest technology in the present programme.
