The National Institute of Bank Management is the

Premier Institution for Training, Education, Research and Consultancy in the

Field of Banking and Finance in India

The forces of change shaping the banking and financial system worldwide are fundamental and constant.

The intense competitive pressure on the financial system has generated a variety of products and services to

meet the specialized needs of millions of customers. The impact of these changes in the international

financial system was felt in India in the early nineties when she initiated the process of integrating her

economy with the global economic order. This ushered in the phase of financial sector reforms in our

country. Reforms, which are primarily aimed at aligning the Indian banking system to the international

best practices, are having lasting effect on the entire fabric of the Indian financial system which is presently

undergoing a major phase of metamorphosis. While reflecting on the dynamics of this change and its

implications in the management of banks, one need to emphasize the phenomenal growth profile of the

Indian banking industry in retrospect and prospect in terms of business, branch network, etc.

Correspondingly, the average population served per bank branch has come down significantly.

The cultural diversity, vast geographical spread and federal character of the country are amply represented

in the complexity of the banks' operations. There has been a perceptible change in the environmental

scenario in banking and finance since the early nineties, and, consequently, managing these institutions

efficiently is a major and continuous challenge.

The recent global financial crisis would change dramatically the way the world regulates the financial sector.

Like in other countries, India too will have to address this issue sooner or later. However, our problem is a

little different since we must regulate markets in a way that does not hamper development. To the extent that

the financial sector helps deliver stronger and more secure long-term growth, its development is important

and therefore our regulatory framework should be premised on this underlying argument.

The Institute

Established in 1969 by the Reserve Bank of India,

in consultation with the Government of India, as

an autonomous apex institution, with the

mandate of playing a proactive role of “thinktank”

of the banking system, the National

Institute of Bank Management (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


The NIBM is an autonomous academic institution

Administrative Block

governed by a Board, its highest policy-making body. The Governor of the Reserve Bank of India (the central

bank of the country), is the Chairman of the Governing Board.

The Institute is engaged in Research (policy and operations), Education, Training of senior executives of

banks, and provide Consulting support to the banking and financial sector. As an institution of advanced

learning, NIBM is well-equipped to train executives to function in a multi-cultural and multi-national

environment. By providing interdisciplinary modules of theory and practical learning, participants are

equipped to become masters in problem-solving. In a year the Institute, on an average, conducts about 150

Training Programmes in various functional areas and as also Conferences and Seminars addressing issues

of topical concern to the banking and financial services industry. About 3000 participants, including about

250 from various developing nations, attend NIBM training programmes every year.


The Post-Graduate Programme in Banking and Finance (PGPBF), introduced in the year 2003-04 to

groom new generation managers for the banking and financial services industry, is an additional key

identity of the Institute.

The Institute is located in sylvan surroundings in a picturesque valley within the Pune city in the State of

Maharashtra. The Campus is spread over a 60-acre plot of undulating landscape with minimum of

distraction and pollution. It has its own self-contained campus with complete residential and educational


Vision of the Institute

“The National Institute of Bank Management will be the trustee for India for helping to create world-class,

competitive banking and financial services capabilities. The Institute would endeavour to offer knowledgebased

products and services in the field of bank management that are as good as, if not better than, the best

anywhere in the world. While much of the products of the NIBM would be of universal interest, there would

also be a focus on the legal and institutional aspects specific to India. The NIBM will be the preferred partner

for enabling vision, strategies, organization, systems, technical, managerial and leadership competencies in

the banking and financial sector, so as to help retain a high share of the domestic market, as well as capture

a significant share of the global market.”

Roles of the Institute

To be the main research and academic arm of the banking industry for continuously upgrading the

knowledge and skills relevant for its top management.

To be the storehouse of data and information of all new and emerging issues in the banking sector.

To be the catalyst in helping banks to secure their financial position and make them world-class.

To be a change agent in the overall functioning of the banking system and facilitate the ushering in of

professionalism in the banking and financial system of the country.

Publication of books and journals is integral to its objectives. It also releases monographs on issues of

topical interest and during the last nine years the Institute has also been publishing a Compendium of

Published Papers and Articles, Conference Presentations by its Faculty members every year.

NIBM – An Organization of Excellence in Banking and Finance

Since its inception the Institute has evolved certain methods of learning and problem-solving approaches.

Research studies conducted by the faculty members on a regular basis form the first pillar of their strength.

Secondly, the insight developed by the faculty while providing consulting support to various banks is

unique. The third important source of knowledge is the conferences and seminars in which the bankers also

present papers and participate in discussions on strategic, operational and managerial aspects of banking

and finance. Fourthly, the faculty members utilize the opportunities to learn various aspects of the

functioning of banks and financial institutions when they guide and assist the programme

participants/PGPBF students in their dissertation/project work. The fifth and a very important source of

learning is the Task Forces and Study Groups set-up at the industry level in which Faculty of NIBM are also

invited to participate as a member along with senior bankers. In addition to these distinctive sources of

learning, the NIBM faculty learns a great deal about the operational/managerial issues through continuous

interaction with the bankers in the classroom and also while visiting their offices.

These modes of learning help the members of the faculty, who are essentially discipline-based specialists, to

develop first-hand knowledge of, and insight into, banking and financial management issues. It enables the

Institute to provide not only relevant management education to executives, but also to assist in solving

organizational problems by adopting an interdisciplinary approach. This makes NIBM a unique

organization of excellence.

NIBM is recognized by the University of Pune as an approved centre for Post-Graduate Research and also by

the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of

India. Many Ph.D. students are currently registered with NIBM for their doctoral dissertation under the

supervision of the Institute's faculty members.

The Institute also conducts Action Research Projects and projects sponsored by various institutions and

government agencies including Reserve Bank of India; Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India;

studies assist in policy formulation as well as policy evaluation at the individual bank level as well as at the

systems level.


(b) Training

The Institute conducts a large number of educational and training programmes (about 150 each year) in all

the functional areas. The programmes are tailored to the emerging needs in the environment of banking and

finance. As a conscious strategy, the focus of the training activities of the Institute is on creating/imparting

new perspectives in the crucial areas of concern to the banks. Themes, objectives, duration and level of

participation of the programmes are tailored by the faculty from time to time. Institute's programmes are

classified into following groups : General Management Programmes, Annual Conferences and Seminars on

Topical Issues, Special Conferences and Seminars, Training Programmes on Functional Areas, Faculty

Development Programmes, In-company Programmes, and International Programmes. In order to increase

the reach of the Institute to the banking system, the Institute also conducts onlocation programmes.

(c) Education

1. Post-Graduate Programme in Banking and Finance (PGPBF) : NIBM has been successfully

conducting PGPBF since 2003-04. The two-year PGPBF is designed as a contemporary, rigorous, innovative

and practical source of management education. The

Programme is pitched to provide to the financial

system, on a regular basis, a pool of talented

youngsters thoroughly trained and fully prepared

with Analytical Skills and Perspectives in Banking

and Finance for directly taking up managerial

RBI, Addressing the PGPBF Class

PGPBF students, the Institute is planning to augment

the in-take of students to 240 in the medium-term and to 480 in the long-term. With this in mind, the

Institute has embarked on a massive infrastructure development plan for PGPBF Learning Complex, Hostel

Complex and Dining Hall within its campus.

2. Fellowship Programme : Historically, the Doctoral Programme was one of the major activities of the

Institute, initiated almost immediately after its inception, with the objectives of (i) expanding the manpower

base for research studies in banking and related areas, (ii) fulfilling the educational responsibility of the

Institute, and (iii) creating a pool of competent and well-trained researchers as a source for future faculty for

the Institute (and society at large).

Institute has been inducting Research Associates in the NIBM Fellowship Programme from 2009-10.

Currently there are 6 Research Associates pursuing the Fellowship Programme of the Institute. The

Fellowship will normally be for a total period of 3 years during which students are expected to work on their

fellowship dissertation and also provide assistance to NIBM Faculty in PGPBF teaching.


(d) Consultancy

Providing consultancy support to banks and financial institutions has always been one of the key strengths

of the Institute. The focus of our consultancy activities has evolved over time : during the 70s and 80s, the

focus was more on providing support in Organizational Design and Development, Design and

Implementation of MIS, Manpower Planning, etc. During the early 90s we have been focusing more on

Design and Development of Computerized MIS, Merchant Banking and Financial Services, Training

Strategies, Strategies for Improving the Profitability and Productivity of commercial banks, etc. With the

introduction of the financial sector reforms at the initiative of the RBI and the Government of India in the

early 90s, there were increasing demands from commercial banks to assist them in Strategic Business

Repositioning, Organizational Restructuring, Human Resource Development, Profitability and Productivity

Strategies, etc. Towards the end of the 90s, the NIBM took the lead in assisting the banks and financial

institutions in setting up their Integrated Risk Management System, Asset-Liability Management System,

Managing Market Risk, Credit Risk Management System Design, etc. The ALM package in Oracle platform,

Investment Management DSS, Credit Rating for Large Corporate and SMEs developed by NIBM faculty are

popular in banks. The Institute has also successfully handled the HR issues in the recent merger of various

banks. Presently the focus of the consulting activities is more on IRM, designing ICAAP, Organizational

Restructuring, Manpower Planning, Customer Relationship Management, Customer Service, etc.



The Institute, since its inception in 1969, has been bringing out a variety of publications in the form of

books, journals, reports, mimeographs and working papers in tandem with its research and training

functions. Apart from over 100 books, a major segment of the publications consisted of the 14 Programmed

Learning Texts on operational banking published in the initial years of the NIBM, specifically to meet the

training needs of the new entrants into the banking industry due to its geographic expansion in the 70s.

A major activity is the regular publication of the following two quarterly journals in English :

(i) Prajnan : Journal of Social and Management Sciences – A Leading Refereed Quarterly Journal

(launched in 1972).

(ii) Vinimaya – Presents conceptual and practical viewpoints of both bankers and management

educationists (launched in 1979).

These journals cater to the needs of professional managers, bankers, researchers and educationists. It may

be mentioned that the editorial board of Prajnan

consists of renowned academicians of

international repute.

Research findings are also brought out in the

form of mimeographs and working papers and

are disseminated to the banking industry.

Expected Profile of the Students





Paradigm shift in the banking and financial environment of the country has created an emergent need for a

new genre of management professionals to meet the new challenges in managing banks, financial

institutions, non-banking financial companies and corporates. In order to cater to this need, the NIBM

conducts a two-year Post-Graduate Programme in Banking and Finance (PGPBF) . This is an added

dimension to the NIBM’s ongoing focus on executive-level Training, Research, Consultancy and

Publications. The two-year PGPBF is designed as a contemporary, rigorous, innovative and practical

source of management education.

The Programme is pitched to

provide to the financial system, on a

regular basis, a pool of talented

young executives who would be

thoroughly trained in Foundations,

Analytical Skills and Perspectives in

Banking and Finance so that they

are fully prepared to shoulder

managerial responsibilities.

Placement have been 100 per cent

since the very first batch. The

Institute has been receiving an

extremely positive feedback from

the banking and financial

community about the PGPBF

students recruited by them in the

past, which can be considered as a

hallmark for this programme.

Convocation Photograph of 2009-11

Students admitted to the post-graduate programme are expected to have scholastic achievements in

different disciplines such as arts, commerce, science or professional streams like engineering, etc. Some of

the students may also have achievements in extra-curricular and organizational activities. In selecting the

candidates for admission to PGPBF, our endeavour is to select a batch with a mix of students with diverse

educational backgrounds.

The student is expected to have high levels of initiative and energy, capacity for hardwork, strong task

orientation, willingness to learn, and a temperament suitable for team work.

In addition to the fresh graduates, the PGPBF will have young officers with experience sponsored by banks

and financial institutions. The selection modalities and other related details for sponsored candidates shall

be directly informed to these banks and financial institutions by NIBM.

PGPBF is an intensive two-year programme. The curriculum covers the basic functional areas of finance and

accounting, marketing, human resource management, strategic planning, management and control, and

rural finance. The basic principles of economics, behavioural sciences, rural finance, information

technology and quantitative methods are taught in the context of management. On the basis of this

foundation, specialized inputs in banking and finance form a major part of the curriculum. A project work of

about 8 to 10 weeks duration on a real life situation in an organization, after the completion of first year, is an

integral part of the Programme. In addition, one project of social relevance and one specialized project in

banking and finance, are to be completed during the Programme.

operations through games, and individual and group projects. The Institute believes in strong interaction

with industry, and practitioners provide significant academic inputs in many courses.


The broad objectives of evaluation are to : (a) Elicit maximum performance from the students; (b) Give

feedback to each student so that they know where they stand in the group, both in relative and absolute

sense; and (c) Provide a benchmark so that students are motivated to perform better. Evaluation is a

continuous process and the faculty may use different instruments like tests, quizzes (surprise and

announced), home assignments, term reports, individual as well as group exercises, classroom

participation, problem solving exercises using computer, etc.

examination are integral parts of the continuous evaluation.

institutions established by an act of parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under Section 3 of

the UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of

India. The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate in the bachelor's degree would be calculated

based on the practice followed by the university/institution from where the candidate has obtained the

degree. In case the candidates are awarded grades/CGPA instead of marks, the conversion of grades/CGPA

to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure certified by the university/institution from where

they have obtained the bachelor's degree. In case the university/institution does not have any scheme for

converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidates

CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result with 100.

Candidates appearing for the final year of bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification examination and those

who have completed degree requirement and are awaiting results can also apply. Such candidates must

produce a certificate from the Principal/Head of the Department/Registrar/Director of the

University/Institution certifying that the candidate is currently in the final year/is awaiting final results and

has obtained atleast 50% marks or equivalent based on latest available grades/marks. Such candidates, if

selected, will be allowed to join the programme provisionally only if they submit a certificate latest by

June 30, 2012 from the Principal/Registrar of their

college/institute (issued on or before June 30, 2012) stating

that they have completed all the requirements (the results

may, however, be awaited) for obtaining the bachelor's

degree/equivalent qualification on the date of issue of the

certificate. Their admission will be confirmed only when they

submit the mark sheet and a certificate of having passed the

bachelor's degree/equivalent qualification referred to in the

certificate issued by Principal/Registrar of their

college/institute with atleast 50% marks. The deadline for

submission of the mark sheet and the certificate is December

31, 2012. Non-fulfillment of this condition will automatically

result in the cancellation of the provisional admission. NIBM

would not allow any candidate to join the programme in case

the candidate is unable to complete all the requirements for a

bachelor degree on or before June 30, 2012. NIBM would also

not offer admission to any candidate after June 30, 2012.

Instances of provision of incorrect information and process

violation detected at any stage of the selection process will lead

process but are detected in subsequent years, such

disqualification will take place with retrospective effect.
