IBP continuing its legacy of being Knowledge Institute has stepped ahead in providing industry with banking pre-induction development programs. IBP laid foundation of The IBP School (TIS) on December 2015 and initiated its programs in three major cities of Pakistan. The IBP School takes on itself to bridge the gaps identified between the industry and candidates.

At IBP School we don’t believe in hunting for potential banker infact we create Potential Bankers for industry. Under the auspicious leadership of the senior management, The IBP School (TIS) aims to educate and train the candidates prior to joining the banking and financial sector as a profession. Certified General Banker Program (CGB) is a recent initiative under this flagship. Through this program, IBP aims to train the youth about banking procedures and technicalities involved while performing a task.

Both practical and theoretical methodologies would be used to provide the candidate with optimum knowledge prior to choosing the banking or financial industry as a career. Highly skilled and trained employees would be readily available for banks to choose from the job market.
