Swiss Bank Executives' Training Program III 
(Swiss BET Program III) 2022-2024

The Swiss Bank Executives' Training Program (Swiss BET Program) is a top-notch 18-month executive education program designed for senior Vietnamese bank executives. The training curriculum is organized around 13 thematic modules covering key topics related to bank management, banking strategy and operational concepts as well as regulatory matters. It provides a comprehensive overview of international practices relevant for bankers in an emerging market setting.

The program will have two parallel cohorts which are simultaneously run, one in the North and another one in the South. The duration of each of the modules will be three days (alternating between Mon-Wed and Fri-Sun). It is estimated that each cohort will have 35-40 participants. Some sessions will be held as joint North-South sessions (possibly in Da Nang) in order to provide networking opportunities for participants of both locations.


This executive training program is implemented under the responsibility of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), in partnership with the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV). It is part of the economic development cooperation of Switzerland for Vietnam.


The training will be delivered by the Swiss Finance Institute (SFI)

Program Director: Prof. Dr. Alfred Mettler
