BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

With the creation of new states by the Babangida Administration in 1991, there arose the need for various banks in the country to open new branches in the state capitals to cater for increasing business activities. Kebbi state as one of the newly created states, benefited from the establishment of new Bank branches; six new Banks branches were opened in the state capital (i.e. Birnin kebbi)immediately after the creation of state. Today all banks in Nigeria are reppresented in the States Capital.

The establishment of more Bank branches meant that more staff had to be recruited and trained. The Polytechnic, in the process of discharging one of its social responsibilities, decided to look into the viability of mounting programmes in Banking and Finance, to facilitate the training of manpower required by the Banks.

Thus, in 1992, after a series of consultations with NBTE, the Polytechnic was given the approval to commence such Programmes. The Programmes were however, run under the Department of Accountancy and Finance, until 1994 when the Department of Banking and Finance was curved out.

The Department currently runs two Programmes leading to the award of

  1. National Diploma (ND) in Banking and Finance
  2. Higher National Diploma (HND) in Banking and Finance

The Department enjoys envied reputations, and highly resourceful staff. Including three (3) PhD holders among others. The National Diploma and Higher National Diploma Programmes are now linked with Chartered instituted of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN).This facilitates acquisition of Professional CIBN Certificate for both staff and students.
