The Accelerated Universal Bankers (AUB) Program is one of CIMB’s initiatives designed to build a team of ASEAN-centric Universal Bankers. The modules are geared to equip the group’s high performing managers with a range of skills and abilities to enable them to lead diverse teams from various backgrounds, countries and cultures, and ultimately thrive in ASEAN’s banking space.

Nanyang Technological University (“NTU”) is CIMB’s programme partner, and the course is conducted at NTU’s campus in Singapore.

On November 2nd, the program focused on doing business in ASEAN and invited banking specialists from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore shared their insights on their respective countries with the participants. The day ended with a panel discussion which featured the country specialists, and John Pang, Chief Executive Officer of CARI.

The panel generated a rich discussion on CIMB’s links with ASEAN’s integration agenda, the financial landscape in Indonesia and Malaysia, and how CIMB can continue to operate successfully in its core markets. The forum was moderated by Prof. Gunter Dufey from NTU.
