The Bangladesh Institute of Bank Management (BIBM) is a unique national institution providing education, training, research and consulting services in the financial sector, especially in the banking sector. It is the highest institution of education in professional banking. It is said that BIBM is a unique educational institution for building a career in banking. The Masters in Bank Management (MBM) conducted by the institute is currently a popular specialized degree for young people aspiring to become bankers.

A graduate of any background can easily get a job in a bank by pursuing a Masters (MBM) in Bank Management and gaining in-depth education in all aspects of the banking business. As MBM's education system is largely practical, its students get more opportunities to become proficient in banking. In addition, they get the opportunity to come in contact with prominent people in the banking sector from home and abroad. More than 1400 students have already completed this degree who are currently working with repute in various financial institutions besides public-private banks.

BIBM Director General Md. Akhtaruzzaman said the two-year and four-month MBM degree organized by BIBM is jointly awarded with Dhaka University and if it is done properly, it is much easier to get a job in the banking sector.

MBM course is conducted under Dhaka School of Bank Management (DSBM). Asked about this, DSBM Director Prof. Md Nehal Ahmed said, banking sector is one of the largest corporate sector in the context of Bangladesh. Therefore, MBM degree opens the door to the banking sector for those who want to build a career in this sector. An excellent combination of theoretical and practical knowledge is the MBM degree through which students can easily adapt to the banking sector.

BIBM has started the process of admission of new batch in MBM. Graduates in any subject can apply for MBM admission. His total schooling time should be at least 16 years.

Apart from bank officials, the institute is also imparting education and training to emerging new and enterprising students. And for that the academic program MBM has been launched.
