The Institute of Banking


The Institute of Banking (IOB) is a professional network of 33,600 members who work in the banking and international financial services sector. IOB is a recognised college of University College Dublin (UCD). It is a centre of excellence in providing specialist education and lifelong learning to the financial services sector with programmes for members at every stage of their career. A total of 8,300 people studied with us last year, and we have the largest continuing professional development community in Ireland, with 23,800 registered members committed to lifelong learning.

IOB was founded in 1898 and is one of the oldest banking institutes in the world. The focus of the new Institute was on education. Its first goal was “to enable its members to acquire a knowledge of the theory and practice of banking, and to promote the consideration and discussion of matters of interest to the profession”. We are proud to continue this tradition as a not‐for‐profit organisation providing education for public benefit.
