Before you register, please review the following criteria and discuss them with your sponsor. It is important to consider both how much you will benefit from the program and how much you can contribute.
1. Type and number of years of experience
Participants should have experience that has prepared them to derive full benefit from the lectures and study materials on international financial markets and strategic management. At the same time, they must bring with them experience that enables them to contribute to the learning of the other participants. The average age of participants is 40, suggesting 10-15 years of banking experience.
2. Current position and future prospects
The registrant should have strong potential for both continued professional growth and contribution to the overall mission of their company through knowledge-based development.
3. English language ability
All classes and written materials will be presented in English. Participants are expected to participate actively in classroom discussions, study group sessions, and present oral reports in English.
PLEASE NOTE: To insure that participants receive full value, program administrators reserve the right to decline registration if the registrant does not meet the criteria stated above. In the event that registration is declined, any program fees paid will be promptly refunded.
Please note that PRBP is an intensive program which requires advance preparation before traveling to Seattle. There are readings and assignments that must be completed prior to the start of the program. While in Seattle, participants spend most waking hours involved in classroom or group study, or organized networking activities with classmates. For this reason, it is recommended that participants do not travel with spouses or family members to Seattle. In the past, some participants have met family members in San Francisco for the graduation ceremony.
REGISTER EARLY, RECEIVE A DISCOUNT
Obtaining a U.S. Visa can be a challenging and lengthy process. To encourage early registration, participants who have submitted completed registrations on or before May 1, 2013, will receive a credit of $150 USD against the program cost.
