BIFS President, Tanya McCartney, expresses that BIFS is "pleased to aid in promoting Bangor University's Chartered Banker MBA program that is one of a kind in the world, and offered to bankers here in the Bahamas.
, speaking on behalf of The Bahamas Institute of Financial Services
, urges the importance of being certified in advancing individually and bolstering the banking sector, as a whole, in The Bahamas.
Understanding that in The Bahamas, like in many other places in the world, the financial sector is still an up growth, recovering from difficulties in recent years, McCartney
acknowledges "banking as a profession, we believe, has suffered some blows in the post recession era, and when people think of bankers, they don't necessarily think of ethics, they don't necessarily think of standards, but this program allows persons to become qualified, to go onto the job, and apply practical skills at a very high standard, and we believe it will bring integrity and standards back to the profession."
