BIBF – Our History
The Botswana Institute of Banking & Finance (BIBF), having recently transformed and rebranded from Botswana Institute of Bankers (BIOB), is a member driven institute; with banks (including the Central Bank) constituting its Corporate Membership. Individual membership includes Ordinary members, being the local banking sector employees who are studying or have studied with the institute and Affiliate members being those students that are not working or have not worked for the banks.
BIBF is accredited with the Botswana Qualifications Authority (BQA) as a training provider and provides banking and financial services related training and education. In 2018, the institute launched its transformation strategy to factor in the fundamentally new kinds of leverage currently available to the institute and to codify knowledge in order to reposition the institute to become competitive as well as power sustainable growth. As part of this strategy the institute has partnered with reputable educational institutions to expand its training offering and services. One such partnership is with London Institute of Banking and Finance (LIBF), which will see the institute provide two (2) professional banking diplomas, one in Retail Banking and the other in Commercial / Business Banking as well as several high impact banking and finance technical short courses. Other reputable international partners currently working with BIBF include Frankfurt School of Finance and Management (FS), Compuscan Academy and Bangor University. The institute also develops and offers innovative in-house short courses, to address both technical and soft skills gaps within the local and regional banking and financial services sector. These include areas such as treasury management, relationship management, risk & compliance, credit management, AML, KYC, customer service, emotional intelligence and governance.
