Banksys, Euroclear, Swift and the Bank of New York have come together to launch Transconstellation, an academic programme in financial transaction services operated in partnership with the Solvay Business School in Belgium.
The Transcostellation founders say the aim of the Academy is to develop a pool of specialist talent and further promote Belgium as a centre of excellence for financial transaction processing.
Approximately 30 students will be enrolled in the programme, organised into four weekly modules held at different venues and times during the year. The course curriculum will cover strategic leadership, governance and regulatory issues, value innovation, business continuity, risk management, project management, resource planning and process re-engineering.
Scheduled to commence in February, the first intake of students have been selected from the four founder institutions. The aim is to open the Academy in its second year to employees of other financial institutions, consultants and IT vendors.
