The Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies (EIBFS) has launched a online research portal.
According to the EIBFS, it is designed to enable region’s bankers, finance professionals as well as students, faculty and researchers to access the latest industry and economic reports and whitepapers, scholarly articles and surveys and support them in their training and education via the web.
The EIBFS 2019 Annual Training Plan involves the launch of four mobile learning apps, one of which will be EIBFS Research. This app, containing all features of the research portal, will be available on the App Store and in the Android App Bundle on Google Play.
The app will include a feature called ‘Ask an Expert’ as part of the portal and app offering, which will allow thousands of industry professionals across the region and beyond to clarify their query or doubt. Queries can be on any area of banking, from risk and compliance and banking technology and law to banking strategy, finance, accounting and control and products and operations management.
“The web-based research portal is an exciting new addition to our program offerings and showcases EIBFS’s focus on constantly coming up with innovative learning tools that will benefit all students and professionals. Such a tool with Ask an Expert feature makes it a powerful platform that combines flexibility with a real intent to provide knowledge that we hope will set a benchmark for the region’s online learning environment I am confident that all members using the platform will find it extremely valuable in their pursuit of training or research and we are always open to feedback to make it more robust and useful for our end users," said Jamal Al Jasmi, General Manager of the Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies.
