ABA Bank Exec™ Simulation

The ABA BankExec™ course combines training in financial management and economic analysis in the context of an innovative computer simulation, which includes situations specifically designed for the Risk Management School. The exercise encompasses lessons on strategic management, team management and bank management in addition to the financial challenges. 

This dynamic simulation focuses on bank management from a balance-sheet perspective and clarifies how the balance sheet drives the income statement. Students participate in teams, analyzing the condition of their banks, making key managerial and pricing decisions, navigating through real-life risk threats, and learning how their decisions affect the performance and risk profile of their banks.
