Banking Supervision within the Basel Framework In cooperation with the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) and the Joint Vienna Institute (JVI)

Deadline for application

31 January 2024


Basel III is a comprehensive set of reform measures developed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision to strengthen the regulation and supervision of risk management in the banking sector. Specifically, Basel III focuses on strengthening the qualitative and quantitative standards within the regulatory capital framework, introduces a global liquidity framework, deploys measures to reduce cyclicality, introduces a leverage ratio and provides a basic approach to regulating systemically important banks. This one-week course seeks to impart comprehensive expert knowledge on major issues relating to the implementation of the Basel framework, focusing on countries in the EU, emerging Europe, and the Caucasus.

The course aims to give an overview of the Basel framework and the Basel III reforms. It will focus on both theory and practice, with special attention being given to introducing the internal capital adequacy assessment process (ICAAP) and the supervisory review and evaluation process (SREP). Furthermore, topics such as the examination of the credit business and the interest rate risk in the banking book will be covered. Participants will be invited to work on case studies on specific topics of the course (in the free time after the lectures) and to share their experiences by giving short presentations on specific aspects of banking supervision in their home country.
