EMC meeting in Budapest - Visit to the Hungarian Central Bank
On the occasion of the EFFAS EMC meeting, the Hungarian Society and its training provider ITCB invited the leading Hungarian CEFA trainers and members of the CEFA/CIIA Alumni with aim to discuss the most burning issues of professional diploma programs. To meet this end, Prof. Janos Száz President of the Hungarian Society, IEC member and Dr Judit Toth, CEO of ITCB introduced the most important achievements in CEFA/ACIIA diploma programs. Mr Jesús Lopez Zaballos EFFAS President and Mike Theobald IEC Chairman have greatly contributed to the discussion and highlighted uncertain matters (e.g. acceptance of CEFA/ACIIA diplomas) by giving lot of practical advices.
Janos Száz has been grandfathering the new Certified Numerical Finance (CNF) programme that was presented by its leading trainer Agnes Vidovics-Dancs. The programme, that has close connections with the finance and capital market modules of the CEFA program, supported by a solid mathematical background, has already been introduced to the Hungarian audience (taught by Prof. Janos Száz and Agnes Vidovics-Dancs); it includes interactive seminars and is especially recommended for those who wish to get more than ready-made training packages. In this connection, Mr Zoltán Rába Investment Director of Eqilor Ltd., classmate of the first CNF course shared his experiences in the light of CNF and life-long-learning. On the kind invitation of Prof. Zaballos, a further presentation of the CNF programme will be held in Vienna during the next EFFAS TQC meeting.
Following the EFFAS EMC meeting on 14 March, representatives of EMC led by Mr Jesús Lopez Zaballos, EFFAS Chairman, and Friedrich Mostboeck, EFFAS Deputy Chairman, paid a visit to the Hungarian National Bank and had a fruitful discussion with Vice Governor Mr Adam Balog. The positive atmosphere and outcomes of the discussion will most probably support the direct and indirect objectives of EFFAS/ACIIA initiatives.
