The National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) was established in 1969 by the Reserve Bank of India, in consultation with the Government of India, as an autonomous apex institution for research, training, education and consultancy in bank management. Its mandate is to play a proactive role as a 'think-tank' of the nation's banking system. NIBM is part of the grand vision of giving a new direction to the banking industry in India and making the industry a more cost-effective instrument for national development. Therefore, helping the managers in their endeavour to make their organisations competitive both in domestic and international markets is the mission of the Institute.


NIBM, an autonomous academic institution, is controlled by the Governing Board, its highest policy-making body. The Governor of the Reserve Bank of India (the central bank of the country) is the Chairman of the Governing Board. The Institute is engaged in Research (Banking Policy and Operations), Education (PGDM) and Training (senior bank executives), apart from providing Consulting support to the banking and financial sector. As an institution of advanced learning, NIBM is well-equipped to train executives to function in a multicultural and global environment. By providing interdisciplinary modules of theory and practical learning, participants are oriented to become masters in problem-solving.


In a year the Institute, on an average, conducts about 150 training programmes in various functional areas as well as conferences and seminars addressing issues of topical concern related to the banking and financial services industry. Over 3,500 participants, including about 250 from various developing nations attend the NIBM training programmes every year. The Institute is located in sylvan surroundings within Pune city in the State of Maharashtra. The lush green campus is spread over a 62-acre plot of undulating landscape with minimum of distraction and pollution.
