Develop your ability to lead at board level to build banking institutions that deliver results for today and prepare for sustainable future success.
As banks worldwide seek to re-establish trust whilst competing in an increasingly competitive environment, they must also grapple with new and complex challenges which demand more of leadership. Advances in technology are significantly disrupting the industry, regulators have increased their expectations and demands, and socio-political issues like climate change and social mobility have become increasingly prominent on bank board agendas.
Board members must increasingly demonstrate to regulators and other stakeholders that they have the requisite expertise, and strategic and operational knowledge, to lead banks through turbulent and changing times.
This programme develops purposeful and effective bank directors by drawing together University of Oxford research in areas including leadership, ethics and conduct, reputation, governance, digital transformation, and sustainable finance.
It is designed in partnership with senior banking professionals from commercial and regulatory environments operating in countries all over the world. This enables us to effectively address the challenges of bank leadership today, and those that exist on the horizon. To bring this to life over the course of the week we will consider how existing operating models, across all elements of the business, could be challenged and changed by the impacts of technology, sustainability and regulation.
Topics will include:
- Sustainability and Climate Risk
- Governance and ESG reporting
- Banking and Geo Politics
