Strategic Training Unit (STU) – State Bank of India
Training in State Bank of India (SBI) is a proactive, planned and continuous process and forms an integral part of organisational development. It seeks to impart knowledge, improve skills and reorient attitudes for individual growth and organisational effectiveness.
In the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world of banking today, the STU is continuously grooming the employees by skilling and reskilling. Banking is increasingly becoming more and more specialised. In SBI, we have six Apex Training Institutes (ATIs) to provide specialised training in the credit, risk, international banking, marketing, rural banking, IT, leadership and human resources areas. Each of the ATIs have been transformed into domain specific specialised outfits thus having the twin advantage of academic excellence as well as practical experience in the learning initiatives. The endeavours of ATIs are supplemented by 51 State Bank Institutes of Learning and Developments (SBILDs) spread across the country which usually delivers the basic process-centric programmes.
