AIB Build A Bank Challenge 2018-19

Teams Collaborate, Ideas Come To Life, Victory Awaits


Welcome to the AIB Build A Bank Challenge which is now entering its 17th year. The programme challenges a team of six students to build a bank, but they’ll get so much more out of it than that! AIB Build A Bank Challenge offers students in Transition Year & Fifth Year an opportunity to showcase their creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Students will also get the chance to give back to their school and community and learn new skills that will stand to them for life. Not only will they be introduced to the world of banking and business, but they will also get to bank some great prizes along the way!


All competing students will invited with their classmates to the AIB Build A Bank National Final in the RDS in March where they will experience an amazing day out, meet other school bank teams, receive proper and professional feedback on their hard work and ultimately be in with the chance of being crowned Build A Bank Champions and win €5,000 for their school.
