General Banking School - Year 1

The mission of this school is to teach bankers to understand the business of managing a bank company, the financial decisions that must be made, how each bank department is inter-related and the economic environment of the business of banking. The KBA General Banking School will prepare bankers for any of the national graduate schools of banking.
