Why this programme


One of the success to growth and profitability of a bank depends on the quality of credit decisions taken by its staff. Credit rating is one of the key building blocks of credit risk management and the rating is an important driver for many credit decisions that the bank takes every day. Business of commercial and retail credit and the interest income is driven by the approval of credit limits, pricing and terms of credit – all of which are governed by the credit risk and rating assigned. 


Credit rating is the key element in bank’s switching over to advanced measurement approach for credit risk capital. All banks are in the various stages of implementing the advanced measurement approach and improper rating may lead to undermining the whole process of credit risk management, including capital assessment. This calls for a thorough understanding of the various aspects of credit rating and robust implementation of the credit rating system.


This programme provides an in depth understanding of the various aspects of credit risk and rating framework as applicable to the financial sector and takes the participants through the whole life-cycle of credit risk; gearing up the managers and other staff with the skill and ability to carry out the risk assessment and rating exercise effectively and utilising the rating for decisions leading to the business growth and returns.

The programme takes the participants through the various credit risk drivers, rating models, framework and rating driven decisions relevant to a practical banker, in the banker’s language, rather than touching upon only the academics of the subject.
