Credit management has the dual purpose of increasing revenue by extending credit to customers deemed to be a good credit risk and minimising the risk of loss from those seen as poor credit risks. For successful credit management, many factors must be considered including the legislative environment, macro and micro implications, the different types of credit, credit banking operations, and credit collections.
The aim of this course is to provide you with comprehensive foundational knowledge and skills required to work in a bank (credit operations or collections).
