The Egyptian Banking Institute (EBI) was established under the Egyptian Law No. 78 in 1991 as the sole training arm of the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) to provide banking, financial and monetary training to Egypt’s banking professionals. Under this Law, the Institute was governed by a Board of Trustees, including the Governor of the CBE and the Institute’s Executive Director. In 2003 under the Egyptian Law. No. 88, the Institute was redefined as a separate entity with an independent budget and governed by a Board of Directors, headed by the Governor of the Central Bank of Egypt. As part of its institutional goals EBI considers program development and improvement as a critical activity to its success. As such, the Institute’s core programming in banking and financial disciplines is augmented with an ever increasing demand for management, human resources, and other “soft” skills, including English for special purposes and information technology. Now, EBI is given the distinction of being the first ACCET accredited banking and financial training institute in Egypt and the region which rendered a unique competitive advantage for EBI in the market. This distinctive advantage allows EBI to satisfy professional certification and development qualifications for Continuing Education Units for all its training courses as well as the Credit Hours for its certificates.
