IFBI is an NIIT Venture

The Institute of Finance, Banking, and Insurance is the result of combining NIIT’s expertise in designing and conducting distributed non-formal education, and Multinational banks's high standing and domain knowledge across the realm of financial services in the banking sector.

This, along with NIIT’s experience of manpower development for the IT sector, provides an unbeatable plethora of knowledge and training solutions for prospective students.

The Nigerian banking industry is directly dependent on the improvement and skill-development of its workforce than ever before – both in knowledge and competency. With a promising growth projection, the Nigerian Banking and Financial sector now needs a workforce that has been properly trained.

In Nigeria, IFBI has partnered with veterans from the Nigerian industry, having more than 30 years of experience, to give the youth an opportunity to be well prepared for next-gen banking careers.

The IFBI curriculum is designed keeping the larger context of current banking practices, insurance and financial services in mind. It does so by offering training across domain, technology, application, and customer service. IFBI’s programs are defined by these four competencies and it is what we swear by when grooming our students and professionals.

One of IFBI’s key focus areas is addressing the manpower challenges of multi-skilled and trained professionals in the BFSI sector by updating the skill sets of existing professionals who are overwhelmed by recent economic reforms, technological advancements and changes in the attitude and approach by performing better in the industry.
