International courses

Since 1995, the Bundesbank has been offering international central banking courses for central bank staff from around the world. These courses target primarily junior staff at the partner central banks. About 20 participants from other central banks can attend the courses, which are held in English. Owing to limited capacity, only one participant from each central bank may attend. More than 600 members of central banks from 80 countries participate in our international central banking courses each year.

The goal of the courses is to provide an international forum to exchange ideas, opinions and thoughts, going beyond the mere transfer of specialist expertise. The Bundesbank therefore applies a discerning approach to the design of its international central banking courses. Depending on the target group (management, specialists, beginners or junior staff), the courses either take the form of a seminar, a course with practical parts, (eg on the computer), a discussion forum, or simply a workshop. The length of the course varies, ranging from three days to one week.
