Chartered Banker Institute
Business School named as a Chartered Banker Institute Centre of Excellence
The University of Exeter Business School has been named as a Chartered Banker Institute Centre of Excellence.
This means students can enrol on the institute’s accredited programme and become student members of the Institute during their studies. Academics will collaborate with the institute for research and events, and there will be opportunities to bring together academics and banking professionals to share knowledge and experience.
The Institute’s Centres of Excellence initiative was launched in late 2015. It provides a formal framework for collaboration with universities, enabling appropriate degrees (usually at masters level) to be recognised within the institute’s membership or qualification structure, and to be formally accredited by the Institute. Newcastle University Business School and Nottingham University Business School have also been named centres of excellence.
Simon Thompson, Chief Executive of the Chartered Banker Institute, said: “I am hugely encouraged to see three more highly respected academic institutions joining our Centres of Excellence initiative. It is yet another example of the increasing influence of the Chartered Banker Institute and its growing membership of over 30,000.”
Dr Angela Christidis, Director of Education in Finance at the University of Exeter, said: “We are delighted to be named a Centre of Excellence, and also that our MSc Marketing and Financial Services courses have been accredited by the Chartered Banker Institute. This will support students in their progress towards successful careers in the banking industry. We are looking forward to sharing findings from our world-leading research with the members of the institute.”
