Young Bankers Programme and Internship Possibility at ProCredit Bank

April 23rd, 2013

Senior Students of Banking and Finance graduating this year may apply at the Young Bankers Programme at ProCredit Bank Albania. The Young Bankers Programme is a comprehensive development training programme for recent graduates from universities or other higher education institutions, as well as for qualified professionals. This programme is the only entry point to ProCredit Bank. 

Methodology and content: During the six-month period, participants take dynamic and interactive courses which are characterized by open discussions. The programme also includes project and group work, followed by practical exercises and travel to locations around the country. Full attendance during the entire programme is mandatory.   

The programme covers the following main topics:

• Responsible banking, finance, the environment and globalization, as well as math and accounting. 

• Practical exercises in economics, banking, communication and analytical and critical thinking, which develop professional and personal qualities, both as individuals and as team members.

• The ProCredit business philosophy and ProCredit history, which presents the bank's corporate culture and ethical principles, as reflected in the ProCredit Code of Conduct and applied in our day-to-day operations.

There is a strong possibility that participants who successfully complete the course will be offered permanent employment with ProCredit Bank Albania.

Other Banking and Finance students with a GPA higher than 3.5, may apply for a Part-time Internship.  During the internship, students will learn about a responsible bank and its mission, the various elements of staff management, what it means to work in teams, and how ProCredit Bank provides quality services to its customers.

The internships are offered for periods of one to three months. Because internships are part of the mandatory curriculum in Albanian universities, programme participants will not receive any pay. The internships take place in all cities in which we have business units, as well as in our Head Office in Tirana.
