About the İMB Training Programs
In order to enhance capacity building for central banking and policy making, the School organizes seminars and workshops. The İMB engineers these events in a way to provide the utmost benefit for the participants. Most İMB training programs are therefore designed to be methodological, application-oriented, experience-based and interactive.

Format and Content
The School invites speakers and lecturers with different backgrounds and from various institutions to deliver presentations in its events. The School welcomes central bankers, scholars and officials from institutions worldwide to contribute to the training programs. The format includes presentations, short discussions, applications, group studies and lectures depending on the content and the aim of the event. The contents of the events include practical issues, applied topics, global standards and methodologies derived from the literature or experience. For the training programs, the School invites:

  • Experienced central bankers to present mostly practical and applied issues,
  • Speakers from international institutions to share global standards and perspectives,
  • Scholars from academia to give lectures in the methodological and theoretical sessions.

Additionally, speakers from the financial sector may be invited to give presentations in selected events.

The İMB accepts applications from experts, officials and economists working for central banks and related policy institutions from all over the world. Those who are interested in applying for the training programs can refer to the event pages for descriptions of the expected background for prospective applicants. The participants are encouraged to contribute through presentations or discussions.

All applicants should apply to the catalog-based events using the online application system available here on the İMB website before the application deadline. A confirmation e-mail will be sent upon receipt of your application. Following the evaluation process, you will receive an additional e-mail regarding the status of your application. As the İMB receives a large number of applications and seating in the classroom is limited, we will not be able to consider late applications. Also, please be informed that the İMB can only accept a maximum of two applicants per central bank or related policy institution. The İMB may require approval from the candidate's institution. Participants are required to attend all sessions of the events.

The İMB does not require an admission fee for the training programs. During all catalog based training programs, the İMB provides airport transfers, accommodation (breakfast included), lunch, coffee breaks and other event related local costs, unless stated otherwise. The İMB will cover the cost of accommodation (breakfast included); i.e., check-in one day before the event and check-out the day following the last day of the event. If participants would like to extend their stay, they will be responsible for any additional costs. Any cost of accompanying people will not be covered by the İMB.
