What will you learn?


Through work within groups, communication between groups, and the search for consensus within the group.

Assessment of the effects of decisions

By confronting the results of the simulated bank, assessing the limitations of decisions and the optimal steps against competitors.

Identification with your own bank and its strategy

Through the presentation and discussion of the market situation of one's own bank, and awareness of one's own responsibility.

Getting to know the operation of the bank

Through real banking situations, simulation decisions and participating in discussions and presentations.

The FinSim training can be perfectly integrated into the bank's career programs and management development programs, because it promotes the transfer of the theoretical professional knowledge of the employees into practice. It provides a broad insight into various management-type decisions and the operation of the bank as a whole.

The training promotes communication between colleagues working in different fields, as well as a better understanding of each other's fields, and contributes to the participants being able to cooperate effectively during the decision-making process.

During the training, they have to make a total of 4 complex decisions, which apply to one quarter each. A report is prepared on the results of the decisions made, and by learning from the correct decisions and learning from the mistakes, you can make successful decisions for the next quarter.
