- Real-world: Hand-selected faculty with many years of exposure in the field share their experience.
Core Subject: The Business Environment of Micro – and SME Banking
The main objective of this course is to understand and assess current dynamics in the Micro and SME finance community and to sketch scenarios of possible future developments. From the macro-level (financial sustainability vs. financial inclusion) via the meso-level (assessing the impact of technology on micro-, rural and SME finance) to the micro level (what will MFIs look like in 2030?).
Technical Elective option A: Risk and Financial Management for MFIs
Risk is inherent in the delivery of financial services. MFIs must adequately manage risk to achieve both their financial and social objectives. Poor risk management practices may lead to huge financial losses and in extreme cases force financial institutions out of business. It is therefore important for MFIs, like all financial institutions, to develop a systematic approach to the analysis of risk. The objective of this course is for participants to deepen their understanding of modern risk analysis subsuming credit, market, liquidity and operational risk and to apply this understanding to the organizations they work for. The financial and risk management course covers four sessions.
Technical Elective option B: SME Banking
The SME banking electives are intended for professionals from MFIs interested in further expanding their business to other client segments. The focus will be on the main differences to microfinance clients in terms of relationship management, documentation requirements and availability, credit risk assessment and financial analysis, collateral management and products and services. The main areas of risk management as well as successful business development of client portfolios lay in the heart of these 4 sessions.
Technical Elective option C: Rural Finance
This course focuses on the application of successful microfinance principles to rural and agricultural lending. It considers key similarities and differences between micro and rural/agricultural operations, especially concerning seasonality, risk considerations, client monitoring, and loan recovery. It examines practical experiences of designing rural and agricultural credit products, delivering these products, and new approaches such as value chain financing and warehouse receipts programs. Like the other technical electives, the rural finance elective lasts four sessions.
Excellence in Leadership Elective
This elective is designed to help participants become leaders with impact. Those who already assume leadership positions will learn how to realize results through effective leadership techniques. New leaders, who are advancing to their first management positions, will be acquainted with the tools to master the challenges of leading teams.
The trends electives focuses on current hot topics in the Micro and SME finance community, such as transformation and deposit taking, mobile, electronic and branchless banking, Islamic finance or impact assessment.
