Abay Bank contracted Frankfurt School to conduct a comprehensive training program for the members of the Board of Directors. The ultimate goal of the program was to upgrade the competencies of the BoD members in order to equip them for the daily tasks of being Non-Executive Bank Managers.
The topics of the programme were chosen to optimize the board functions. The seminar was based on international best practices in banking and was customized to the current situation in the Ethiopian banking sector and the special needs of the Bank.
In addition to the class-room workshop and interactive discussions, a series of bank visits to German commercial banks were organized in order to provide participants with insights into Bank Management how it is practiced in Germany.
