Executive Summery:

As a student of NUB, Internship is an integrate part to accomplish the MBA degree. This report has been prepared on the basis of work experience in Paltan Branch of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited with the instruction of Mr. Md. Shoriful Islam, Senior Lecturer in NUB. This report focuses my experience in Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited and has provided a clear idea about the activities and operational activities of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited.

Basically IBBL is an Islamic Bank based on “Islamic Shariah”. It follows the alternative concept of Islamic Banking which represents unique human approach to credit and banking based on profit- oriented economy devoid of interest. In this regard IBBL has introduced a number of income generating programs for the millions of urban and rural poor people. With the objective in view IBBL has formulated a profitable investment option for the rich to invest and for the poor a credit program to earn and live in a better society with greater security and peace.

IBBL is operating in a three-sector banking system. Such as Formal, Non-formal and Voluntary sector. General Banking, Investment and Foreign Exchange are operated under the formal sector. Development and management of waqf and mosque properties, management and inheritance properties and joint venture for management of non-profit foundations, and charitable trusts and organizations are executed under the Voluntary Sector.

Internship functions have been performed in three departments (General Banking, Investment and foreign Exchange). Among the three departments of the bank more emphasize has been given to General Banking activities in order to prepare this report.

Basically report’s findings is cover three major areas, – “An Analysis of General Banking and Investment of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited.-Special Focus on Paltan Branch.” General Banking provides the foundation of banker customer relationship through opening account. This is the busiest department and the daily transaction of concerned to the customers for drawing of depository money, selling of instruments to them  for remittance purpose, collection of their instruments providing other ancillary services to them and keep customer section busy. Other functions like- offering various types of account, remittance, clearing, cash section function. By these deposits IBBL provides many services to manage the need on customers.

In the case of import-export section IBBL shows better performance than other banks. The import and export business of IBBL has a gradual- increasing tend from 1983. But in order to capture higher market share than the competitors, the policy of IBBL in this regard should be more flexible and competitive than the present.

IBBL is performing well in terms of acquired assets and human resources of higher quality. IBBL will be more effective in our economy by adopting modern financial technology and extending their activities in human and social welfare.
