The program delivers a modern learning experience by using advanced technology to personalize the learning and expedite the impact while minimizing the workload for those who already possess the required skills.

Gergely Fábián, Chief Executive Officer of BIB, noted, “We are delighted to work with Moody’s Analytics and to bring their educational framework and professional knowledge in mortgage lending to Hungary. The program aims to instill best practices in lending for mortgage lenders in the Hungarian Banking industry.”
