National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) was established in 1969 by the Reserve Bank of India, in consultation with the Government of India, as an autonomous apex institution for research, training, education and consultancy in bank management.
Its mandate is to play a proactive role of “think-tank” of the banking system. NIBM is part of the grand vision of giving a new direction to the banking industry in India and making the industry a more cost-effective instrument for national development. Therefore, helping the managers in their endeavour to make their organizations competitive both in domestic and international markets is the mission of the Institute. NIBM, an autonomous academic institution, is governed by a Board, its highest policy-making body.
A perfect blend of analytical skills, subject knowledge and a thorough understanding of the practical nuances of banking business, makes PGDM students a class-apart from graduates of other business schools. The PGDM curriculum covers business and functional areas related to management of banking and financial institutions. Knowledge based pedagogy combined with the practical inputs from industry, is the distinctive feature of the course.
Acceptance of the graduates of PGDM of NIBM at middle-management level in banks and financial institutions in critical areas like risk management, credit management and treasury, in a way, is a testimony to the quality of the programme. PGDM programme has a history of having 100 per cent placement since its inception.
