Description

Expand Your Global Banking Networks

The financial services industry is in constant flux, requiring banking professionals to keep up with the changes. At the same time, an increasingly global economy demands a greater understanding of different markets and cultures. The Pacific Rim Bankers Program (PRBP) prepares you to manage these challenges.

This intensive two-week program helps you:

  • Improve decision-making skills with tools for assessing the competition, creating business strategies, analyzing opportunities, and responding to changing markets.
  • Expand your professional network by meeting fellow participants and becoming part of an extensive alumni community.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of cultural differences as you learn alongside participants from the United States, Europe, Central Asia, North and South America, and Pacific Rim countries.

Armed with new skills and new contacts, some GBP graduates go on to lead some of the world’s most influential banks. Register for GBP and make sure you and your colleagues are prepared to deal with the current and future changes in the financial industry.

Content overview

Communication Styles and Impact (new for 2018)

Relationship management is especially important in the banking industry and the ability to communicate is crucial. During this session, participants will gain a better understanding of their and others’ communication styles and learn to adapt their styles to maximize effective communication. As part of the session, participants will also work in teams to reach a common goal, while competing with other teams. Through the exercise, participants will apply and learn how thoughtful communication could lead to better teamwork that fosters creativity.

Negotiations Skills

Sessions will focus on providing participants with tools for becoming a more effective communicator and decision-maker. Proven techniques for building and maintaining relationships, how to apply appropriate power and influence, structuring agreements, and developing buy-in will be discussed

Technology Innovation Strategy (new)

Sessions will focus on how firms and individuals could be more innovative and entrepreneurial and effective in thinking about their customers and existing products in order to develop new technologies and services to better meet customer needs.

International Financial Markets (revised)

The international finance module will present students the opportunity to revisit one or two building blocks of international finance, such as, FX hedging, capital market integration, or cross-border financing, and then provide an overview over related recent trends and developments (post GFC bank regulation, the Euro zone and Brexit, or the emergence of China as a financial center).

Emerging and Disruptive Technologies (new)

The focus of this session will be on the concept of technology disruption and what it means to compete in a world where technology is fundamentally transforming many industries. Faculty will discuss (1) how technological change is impacting your industry, and (2) some emerging disruptive technologies that can help or hinder your ability to successfully compete.

Effective Leadership

During these sessions, participants will focus on the critical leadership attributes, qualities, skills, and competencies needed to create and sustain organizational success. We will explore the dynamic leadership issues facing today’s financial institutions. These modules will challenge students to build on their established skills and competencies and exchange ideas and experiences in ways that enhance leadership effectiveness throughout their organization. Our goal is to challenge participants’ thinking about contemporary leadership challenges, responsibilities, and obligations and enable them to:

  • gain a deeper understanding and insight into the roles, requirements, and expectations of leaders in banking roles.
  • understand the role of leaders as agents of change capable of using effective leadership processes to help reshape their organization to meet the challenges of a global economy.
  • develop the managerial leadership skills to facilitate transforming their organization and creating a culture of shared responsibility.
  • improve their understanding of effective decision making as a means of creating an achievement-oriented culture.

Leading Organizational Change (new)

The purpose of this course is to enhance your ability to affect work unit change to increase your work unit’s performance. The specific learning goals are to equip you with tools for (a) diagnosing your work unit’s current operational state (including the identification of key opportunities and challenges), (b) designing a future operational state wherein your work unit’s performance is improved, and (c) developing a living change plan to bring about the desired future state.

Financial Services Industry: Practices, Products, and Prospects (evolves each year)

In addition to learning from faculty, participants will have scheduled opportunities to learn from executives from the banking and financial industry as well as from one another. One of the unique aspects of the Global Bankers Program is that it attracts participants from all over the globe and the mixed citizenship provides a rich network of contacts that spans cross-border connections.

The topics presented by key industry leaders change depending on the economic trends facing organizations, but they remain relevant and dynamic. The program also includes a special visit to the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and introduces new trends, key issues, and challenges currently impacting the banking industry.

Teaching method

An interactive and rich learning experience

With the Global Bankers Program’s highly interactive format, the way you learn is as engaging as the learning itself:

Lectures and discussions: Learn frameworks and techniques for analyzing the most current and relevant issues important to bankers, and benefit from fellow participants’ insights, knowledge, and experience.

Study teams: Participate in small group exercises to build teamwork skills while forging international relationships for future connections.

Case studies: Understand how to analyze strategic banking issues through examining real-world problems within a team setting and discussing your findings across teams in class. Instructors facilitate the learning discussions and provide key takeaways.

Bank seminars and guest speakers: Get the inside track from guest speakers representing major banks and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco as they discuss current issues related to banking and business.

Hot topic presentations

Influential professionals in the banking industry facilitate a presentation and question and answer session about current issues. These presentations are intended to provide an in-depth overview of topics most applicable to the challenges you face today. Previous presentations have focused on wealth management, mergers and acquisitions, managing risk, and sub-prime issues.

Sightseeing in Seattle and San Francisco

Enjoy the sights, flavors and shopping destinations in two beautiful West Coast cities. Free time in Seattle and San Francisco will give you an opportunity to explore with the group or on your own.

This intensive two-week program helps you:

  • Improve decision-making skills with tools for assessing the competition, creating business strategies, analyzing opportunities, and responding to changing markets.
  • Expand your professional network by meeting fellow participants and becoming part of an extensive alumni community.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of cultural differences as you learn alongside participants from the United States, Europe, Central Asia, North and South America, and Pacific Rim countries.

The GBP curriculum is based on two enduring themes:

  1. Analysis of financial institutions’ decision-making in a constantly changing global environment.
  2. Analysis of international financial markets and the economy.

GBP faculty members teach both principles and practices. They equip participants with tools to better understand the financial services industry, international financial markets, risk management, strategy, leadership, and the global economy. But they do not stop there; they then bring those teachings to life by applying them to current issues. The result is a program that is timely and relevant, with lasting impact.
