  21. 21. 2.0 INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY2.1 IntroductionMarketing scope in banking sector should be considered under the service marketing framework.Performed marketing strategy is the case which is determination of the place of financialinstitutions on corporate clients’ mind. Bank marketing does not only include service selling ofthe bank but also is the function which gets personality and image for bank on its corporateclient’s mind.2.2 Rational of the StudyNational Bank Limited is one of the most renowned private commercial bank in Bangladesh.The report entitled “Relationship between NBL & its corporate clients” has been prepared as apartial fulfillment of MBA program Faculty of Business administration, American InternationalUniversity Bangladesh (AIUB) . In Today’s world only academic education does not make astudent perfect to become competitive with the outside world. Internship is highly needed to gainidea, knowledge and practical experience.It is not possible to know everything about banking service process within this limited timeperiod.  I chose the topic to find out the corporate client’s satisfaction level between the organization.  To find out what type of facility the corporate client demand & wants from the organization.  This topic will help me to know the reason for Evaluation, person who should benefit from the evaluation, what type of evaluation should be 21
  22. 22.  used and what problems might be encountered. 2.3 Statement of the Problem Problems from the Corporate client’s point of view  ATM is the most widely used in other banks in our country. However, the numbers of ATM booth are so much limited.  National bank limited does not have enough products comparing to other banks of our country. It is also a very big problem.  The service of the bank is moderate, which is a big problem for NBL. Problems from employee point of view:  Delay in loan processing system  Slow criteria of employee motivation  NBL web site does not give the all information for the employee  Service time is limited The problem of NBL related to export:  Sometimes the exporters do not provide full documents with export form (EXP form) 22
  23. 23.  Exporters sometimes do not provide the EXP documents in right time. So the bank faces problem to get the exporters full documents within specified time that is service big problem to the client.  Sometimes corporate client authority takes time to provide the documents. But the bank need to provide the triplicate EXP form to the Bangladesh bank within the specified time. The problems of National Bank limited related to foreign remittance:  Party declaration is a very big problem for the bank in case of foreign remittance. Because the bank need to provide the report to Bangladesh bank within the first five days in a month. But the corporate clients do not contact within the specified. 2.4 Scope and Delimitation of the Report While preparing the report I have learned a lot about the Bank and banking system situated in Bangladesh. NBL is one of the well-known banking institution and I have known their products and different terms of their business, how they work in the field and provide their services to their corporate clients. Commercial Bank of National Bank Ltd. These activities involve: • General Banking activities • Corporate client care service • Banks product and services But special emphasis is given on the Corporate client care activities of the branch In order to write this report I will work for 2 months as an intern in National Bank Limited (Dilkusha Branch). I will also collect data from other sources related to my topic which is 23
  24. 24. mentioned in methodology. It has become essential for every person to have some idea on thebank Institutions. As our educational system predominantly text based, inclusion of practicalorientation program is an exception to the norm. From practical knowledge, we’ll be able toknow real life situations and launch a career with some practical experience. My report topic hasbeen selected as “Relationship between NBL & its corporate clients”During a short span of time the bank has been able to establish a good image in the bankingsector and has become a house hold name in the country due to several corporate clients- friendlydeposit and loan scheme. I am doing my internship in National Bank Limited with rotation ondifferent desks which includes accounts opening, general banking, clearing, loan and advance,Import & Export etc. in this report “Relationship between NBL & its corporate clients” I’llfocus on how &corporate client positive relation with this bank. Since they are standing at goodposition among the private banks, their market share, marketing mechanisms, overall strengthand weakness, objectives, goals will be cross examined for analyzing the fact that how they wereand how they will be in future.Corporate Clients relationship between the bank are internal environment of the branch, variousschemes offered, location, attitude of officers, query handling, prompt service delivery, variouscharges, interest rate, networking and so on. The study shows that most of the corporate clientsare satisfied with the services of the bank but there are some dissatisfying factors which areinflexibility in credit sanctioning facility, higher interest rate, inadequate e-banking facilities andso on. In these circumstances, to better satisfy corporate clients the branch should be moreflexible in giving loans, charge reasonable interest rate, and can undertake some promotionalmeasures to make corporate clients aware of the services.As I am directly in touch with corporate clients, the report will deal with the service quality andcorporate client’s positive relation with National Bank Limited. A survey will be conducted onthe corporate clients of National Bank Limited. The objective of this report will be to determineto how well National Bank Limited is satisfying the corporate clients on different servicegrounds. Various important issues of corporate clients satisfaction will be presented in thefindings of the survey. 24

Lastly the findings will be examined to prescribe a set of specific recommendations to improvethe overall service quality according to corporate clients expectations and also to solve theexisting problems in the whole organizational level.2.5 Objectives of the ReportThe endeavor of this report is to endow me with valuable practical knowledge about bankingoperations and activities and analyze the performance of the National Bank Ltd.

  26. 26. 3.0 LITERATURE REVIEWThe impact of market conditions corporate clients always wants to take more profit ,well interestrate from their deposit, They takes loan if they show well deposit in the same bank. NBL(Dilkusha Branch) keeps all the criteria for their client. From 1983 to Present different sectorsclient NBL performs so nice servicing policy.

Deposit, Loan, L/C opening information gets the corporate clients so easy wayby the experienced employee. So, NBL (Dilkusha Branch) obviously creates positive or goodrelationship between the corporate clients. 26
  27. 27. In this bank, there are so many service features for the corporate clients. They keeps theirdeposit(SND,CD,FDR).They take loan(SOD,CC,SME).For L/C opening they take the servicesare-(Back to back L/C,Packing credit).In NBL (Dilkusha branch) for the corporate client service is the service provided in support of aCore Product. Corporate client service most often includes answering question, taking orders,dealing with billing issue, handling complaints and perhaps scheduling maintenance.Corporate client service occurs on site or it can occur over the phone or via the internet. NBLoperates corporate client service call centers, often staffed around the clock.

  28. 28. NBL emphasizes attentiveness and promptness in dealing with Corporate client request,question, complaints, and problems.Responsiveness is communicated on corporate client by the length of time they have to wait forassistance, answer to question, or attention to problems, that NBL performs nicely. 28
  29. 29. 4.0 METHODOLOGYIn order to make the report more meaningful and presentable, from two sources data andinformation have been collected. This are-Data Collection a) Primary sources b) Secondary sourcesa) Primary sources of data including the following: • Face to face conversation with the institutions officers and staffs • Direct conversation with the corporate client. • Practical deskwork.b) Secondary sources of data including the following: • Annual report of National Bank Limited • Website. • National Bank Limited DatabaseThe exploratory survey reached perform with the respondent by door-to-door interview methodwhere respondents go through a questionnaire survey by taking the help of respondents Iconstructed a very specific questionnaire that prepared with flexibility to make it unbiased andthe survey structured by both “open -ended” and “close –ended”.

  30. 30.  Corporate client’s satisfaction Level analysis Besides every quality report some research or analysis is needed.. I tried to analyze the questionnaire and Graph in order to measure the overall service condition delivered by the Corporate client service between the bank. The methodology by which the whole survey is analyzed was very simple and in some question I follow the Scale for perfection of the analysis. I also tried to represent the questionnaire through (Pie ,column) Diagram. Basically I tried to formulate the questions such a way that the analysis can show the overall service condition and the satisfaction level of the corporate clients. 15 questions are actually about the Relationship between the Corporate clients care that serves by NBL. 30
  31. 31. 5.0 DATA ANALYSIS & INTERPRETATION1.

The marketing structure of the National Bank Ltd. goes very defensive mode. Only 14%corporate clients of 100% are concern about NBL by their publicity. So I think that the NBLshould concentrate more on their advertising at different media. 31

  48. 48. While I am doing my Internship Program I had found out some problems faced by thecorporate clients. • Sometimes, Lack of information about the Corporate client banking Services, corporate client usually have to face hesitation for the right information for the right authorized officer. • Too slow server to work. • National Bank Ltd. partially automate their operations, so many works are still done by manually. On the other hand, most of the banks automate whole activities, which make their work easier and faster. • Refusing to provide introducer or photo for opening accounts, which is not showed be done for the client. • Sometime corporate clients miss behave with the employees and stuffs but should be proved that NBL was right. • Corporate clients are not satisfied with the ATM services of the Bank. Most of the cases the machine is out of order and the technicians are not available. • Sometimes time not fixed for the client to take loan, deposit or take interest which makes the corporate client fully hesitate. • For L/C opening sometimes create long time for not proper giving service to the client • In cash counter receive & payment area of Dilkusha branch creates crowd for the honorable corporate clients. 7.0 RECOMMENDATIONS 48
  49. 49. Recommendation of these report has been made on basis of the research findings of servicingfor the corporate client from National Bank Limited. With my little experience in bank, I haveobserved and found out some aspect of their banking. On the basis of my observation I like torecommend the following recommendation: • Management should focus more on quick service, empathy, duration of loan repayment, card issues and loan processing time to ensure overall corporate client’s satisfaction, as this has been statistically proven. • Banking is a service-oriented marketing. Its business profit depends on its service quality. That’s why the authority always should be aware about their service quality. Employees must give individual attention to consumer and efficiency should be ensured. • Speed in servicing activities must be quick • The bank should adopt more technological devices to provide better services • Need to increase the number of ATM booths. • Online banking must be introduced for the client as vast area basis. • Retain & attract to the corporate client by servicing exist product & also upgrading product, build positive relationship with the corporate client by servicing that product’s information well to them. • To inform the client why NBL is the best bank for servicing activities than the other banks, this activities must be done by the experienced employee in NBL. 49
  50. 50. 8.0 CONCLUDING REMARKS8.1 ConclusionNational bank limited has positive image itself as the local banks among third generationbank. National bank limited is committed to keep up its promise to provide cordial servicesin baking to its valued corporate clients. NBL management has always put special effort touphold the interest and trust of their corporate clients. NBL is initiating new products andconcentrating on the consumer demand that is drawing a difference between NBL with otherbanks.This research report has provided some interesting insight into what kind of service thecorporate clients give importance to and what quality they get from NBL. It is quite obviousfrom the research that the corporate clients requirements are not fully met and they are verydissatisfied with some of the aspects of the bank (loan interest rate, different service charges,convenience location, organized processing etc.) again the research relevant that only onethird of corporate clients where more of less satisfied with the services of the bank and morethan half of the respondents were on the neutral side of satisfaction line. NBL should attractthis half and bring then to the positive side of the road so that strong relationship with thecorporate clients can be maintained.In order to retain competitive edge, investment in technology is always a top level and underconstant focus. Keeping the network within a reasonable limit, NBL strategy is to serve thecorporate clients through capacity buildings across multi delivery channels. They are betterplaced and poised to take corporate clients through fast changing times and enable themcompete more effectively in the market they operate.The main purpose of this report is to study “Relationship between NBL & its corporateclients” considering all the attributes which influence corporate clients should be moreeffective for them. Due to the significantly important of those factors they can compete in themarket in the near future. In the servicing care unit which has some problem of NBL, mustbe taken good care for retain & attract to the corporate clients. 50
  51. 51. 8.2 Limitations of the ReportThe report has been conducted to make an investigation of the banks service oriented activities;during carrying out the study in this field, some problems may be termed as limitations of thestudy: • In NBL, all employees are too busy. It is tough to have a break from their tight schedule & get some information • There are a lot of secret matters in the organization. As an intern the researcher cannot reach to those secret topics. But only I have shown some familiar companies name in this report, those are positively get better service from the NBL. • Technological aspect: The report does not describe any technological aspect. • In some cases, up to date information were not published. • Lack of proper books, journals and other elements. • Sufficient records, publications facts and figure are not available, these hamper the scope of real analysis. • Many procedural matters were written from our own observation, which may also vary from person to person.In spite of all the limitations I fully prepare the whole report while conducting the study andmaking of it. It has managed to end up well. I believe that I have prepared a quality report on theCorporate client care division of the system of the National Bank Ltd. 51
