Young Bankers Programme is the right place for enthusiastic people who wish to demonstrate and upgrade their qualities. All practical assignments and group projects urged us to become more resourceful, inquisitive and committed to everything that was happening at the bank.

It was challenging for us, all different personalities of different personal qualities, to learn to work together as a team. You cannot learn that at the university, and neither can you at school.

I remember the time in the Programme for the many positive emotions, and the friendships we made that will certainly last."

„What made the Programme unique was the smooth transition from the student bank to a future job. We were provoked to think out of the box and leave our zones of comfort.

The Programme gave me the opportunity to travel a lot and make contacts with colleagues all over Bulgaria. I can see the benefits from the client meetings I attended during the Programme today that I already have a job at the bank. Now I work as a Business Client Adviser and my job is mainly to hold meetings with many different people. I am glad that the Programme prepared me for what was to follow."

Young Bankers Programme allows its participants to get acquainted with the institution from the inside before actually starting a job with it. You learn the objectives and the policy of the institution you are at.

The different modules provide different experiences, perspectives, and the chance to meet different characters. The bank experts show you how things work in practice."
