IEB, centre focused on financial training, and WSBI (World Saving Banks Institute), in collaboration with the London School of Economics (LSE), launched the first international initiative aimed at building a more responsible financial system: the ‘Responsible Banking Challenge’.
The main objective is to encourage financial professionals to send their proposals to contribute to the development of a financial system that is more responsible society, the environment and the world economy. This is an opportunity to build a more ethical system worldwide, in which banking professionals are committed to social development.
Some of the fields where these proposals can be developed are, for example; financial integration (according to the World Bank, universal access to financial services contributes to poverty reduction); CSR activities; improvements in a bank’s good governance strategy; financial entities’ good practices manual; or the creation of indicators capable to of evaluating the ethical and responsibility level of financial institutions.
The best initiative will obtain a scholarship to study the Master in Responsible Banking from IEB and WSBI, an online programme in English, taught in collaboration with the London School of Economics Executive Education (LSE). The other selected candidates will be awarded a 30%-50% scholarship to study the programme.
