We see emerging the need for new skills where the knowledge of technology and information systems (IT / IS) must be consistent with the understanding of the corporate strategy, the knowledge of new methods of organization and management, the expertise about working practices and business processes of the company.

This training includes these very requirements in an area where the IS is not only a support function for companies' business, but builds up the core system for the activity: the bank.

The module introduces to present or future professionals of banking services, developing their business skills, the key points regarding information systems in their field of activity.

The module is structured around a case study (BG2N, fictional regional bank) allowing to conduct a series of exercises.
