The Bank Board Academy for Non-Executive Directors aims at stimulating and enhancing independent board members’ interactions with supervisors and regulators and among themselves:

  • to ensure consistency and homogeneity of banks’ governance across Europe;
  • to be best equipped by:
    • Keeping up to date and sharing key experiences,
    • Giving tools and instruments for board members to play their role in the design and execution of the overall strategy.

This training features an international faculty of regulators, supervisors, and academics together with bank and finance professionals.

The level of engagement in discussions and group exercises will provide participants with a valuable learning and networking opportunity.
