Expand Your Global Banking Networks

The financial services industry is in constant flux. Bankers must keep up with innovations in technology, regulatory reform, and new business models amidst an increasingly global economy. The UW Global Bankers Program (UW-GBP) equips leaders to thrive through decision-making skills, leadership development, and hands-on problem-solving of industry challenges. To address and adapt to the changing business environment, the 2021 program will be offered remotely, separated into 2 Modules.

During the two weeks in Module 1, you will:

  • Enhance leadership and decision-making skills for a changing global economy
  • Develop a network of business contacts and become part of an extensive GBP alumni community worldwide.
  • Gain a new understanding of industry-changing forces such as risk, globalization and technology.
  • Improve decision-making skills with tools for assessing the competition, creating business strategies, analyzing opportunities, and responding to changing markets.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of cultural differences as you learn alongside participants from the United States, Europe, Central Asia, North and South America, and Pacific Rim countries.

During Module 2, you will continue to work remotely with your team on your capstone project introduced during Module 1. The final team presentations and graduation will be on October 7 in front of the UW-GBP Board. If it is determined to be safe to travel by October and most of the class participants can meet in-person in Singapore, then we will host October 7 capstone presentations and graduation in a hybrid model that allows both in-person and online participation. Those attending in-person will be responsible for their own travel arrangements and costs.

If it is still not safe to travel, then we will hold October 7 presentations and graduation remotely.

Equipped with new skills and new contacts, some UW-GBP graduates go on to lead some of the world’s most influential banks. Register for UW-GBP and make sure you and your colleagues are prepared to deal with the current and future changes in the financial industry.
