Developing Leaders in Global Banking

The key objective of the Developing Leaders in Global Banking programme at INSEAD is to develop the managerial skills of high potential bankers. 

Developing High Potential Bankers

We are pleased to invite you to attend the Developing Leaders in Global Banking programme, jointly developed between INSEAD and the Inter-Alpha member banks. The key objective of the programme is to develop the managerial skills of high potential bankers.

In every country, bank executives have to cope with the legacy of the economic crisis and the rapid transformation of their industry: worldwide integration, Basel III regulations, the European single supervisory mechanism, digital banking, new fintech competitors, and the blurring of frontiers between banking, insurance and capital markets combined with an increased scarcity of key resources: capital, liquidity and talents. Moreover, institutional shareholders require two-digit return on equity and growth in earnings when capital adequacy and liquidity rules are made much more stringent.

To foster motivation and long-term value creation, banks are increasingly decentralised, and are in need of executives who are highly qualified managers as well as bankers. The INSEAD Inter-Alpha programme has been developed with this context in mind. It provides a unique opportunity for participants to exchange views and benefit from the experience of bankers from all over the world.

The programme draws on research undertaken at INSEAD on the international financial services sector. This programme has allowed the promotion of high quality research, conferences and workshops, the development of new teaching material, bank simulations and the creation of leading-edge expertise in the management of banks. Over the years, INSEAD has become one of the few business schools with specific expertise in the banking sector. In addition to meting the INSEAD faculty, the participants will have the opportunity to share ideas with senior executives from other banks who will come to address specific issues in Fontainebleau.
