For succeeding in this course, one should possess high ethical standards and prudence because the Banking industry is a business of trust.

The principles, theories and formulas would never be enough if one does not possess the values and maturity needed in the workplace. It is not all about what is written in the book. Most of the time, it is about one's attitude.
