First graduates emerge from Citi programme Back  
One year on from the launch of the Citi Certificate in Applied Financial Services, the first 80 students of this course have graduated.
Citi has heeded the call for more skilled employees as the first graduates of its Certificate in Applied Financial Services emerge. The one-year, third level academic programme was specifically designed to provide students with a generic overview of the financial services environment as well as the specific cash, trade, treasury, securities and funds administration products and services provided to Citi’s customers.

The course was launched to offer further education opportunities to Citi employees and can act as a ladder for graduates who hope to continue their studies with the Institute of Bankers in Ireland (IBI) or UCD. The Citi Certificate in Applied Financial Services was developed by the Citi Learning & Development Centre in Dublin, in conjunction with the IBI to meet the growing demand from employers and employees to bridge the skills gap in the industry.

This first-to-market programme is being rolled out in the UK for Citi employees and will eventually be available to all employees across the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region. There were 78 graduates at the graduation ceremony and there are currently a further 180 employees studying the course.

Anthony Walsh, chief executive, IBI said, ‘The Institute of Bankers is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Citi to create an accredited educational programme tailored to the needs of Citi staff. It provides the educational foundation for a successful career within Citi while also providing a ‘ladder-of-educational-opportunity’ to a wide range of Institute of Bankers, and UCD awards. We would hope that participants will have been spurred-on to pursue further studies in banking and financial services which in turn will enhance their career prospects in one of Ireland’s most vibrant industries.’
