Cambridge Summer School Programme to address main disruptors in the banking world
KUALA LUMPUR – The Asian Banking School’s (ABS) flagship Cambridge Summer School Programme was officially launched on 18 April 2017 by the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, Datuk Muhammad bin Ibrahim. 

The programme is a collaboration with the world-renowned University of Cambridge Judge Business School and is the second in ABS’s flagship series after last year’s roll out of the Global Banking Leaders Programme with Cass Business School in London. It will be delivered at the University in Trinity Hall College, one of the institution’s oldest and most beautiful colleges, and participants of this week-long programme will stay on campus for a fully immersive Cambridge experience.

During his opening address at the launch of the programme, Datuk Muhammad said, “Participants of this programme can look forward to being part of a landmark initiative that will provide vast opportunities to expand knowledge, experience and networks. Cambridge University is truly prestigious. Many ideas by scholars from this great institution have transformed entire professions, understanding and thinking.”

“We should never forget that investment in human capital also means investment in future social capital. We should recognise that investments in social capital have long term consequences,” he further added.

ABS CEO Professor Colyn Gardner, said, “This partnership with Cambridge speaks volumes on the School’s continued commitment to deliver world class learning opportunities for the industry. Participants of the programme in return will become members of the Cambridge Judge Business School Executive Education Alumni, which is an honour recognized around the world.”

The theme of the inaugural Cambridge Summer School Programme is “Creating Resilience from Disruption in Today’s Banks” and will address the main disruptors affecting the banking world. It will be held in the first week of August.
