1.1 Origin of the report: Generally by the word “Bank” we can easily understand that the financial institution which deals with money. Bank owners want to render efficient service to clients at every Possible location at the maximum cost, Government wants banks to regulate the money market and as well as issue notes and currencies. The clients want their belongings safe as well deposit money from different locations, Recognizing the different needs of the different key party’s interest the banking business; the banks have evolved into different categorizes to meet these needs. That’s why there are different types of banks like- central Bank, Commercial Bank, Agriculture bank, Industrial bank, cooperative bank. But when we use the term “Bank” without ant prefix or restriction it refers to the Commercial bank. Commercial bank is an institution, which plays a major role in channeling to borrowers with productive investment opportunities to run the economy smoothly. That’s why commercial banks are the most important type of financial institution interest the terms of asset. So, the people of the society and the government are very much dependent on the commercial bank as well as the financial intermediary. In 1983, banks were allowed in the private sector. Now banking sector is one of the fastest growing sectors of the country. During the last 30 years, banking sector in Bangladesh has grown and developed horizontally and vertically. Bank branches have been spread up to the rural areas. Bank services have multiplied. Number of bank has increased impressively. Now there are 48 scheduled commercial banks in the country with 6,596 branches. Besides these there are also four unscheduled bank. 1.2 Background of the Study Knowledge and learning become perfect when it is associated with theory and practice. For any business student only curriculum activity is not enough for handling the real business situation, therefore, it is a requirement after the completion of BBA to involve with a business organization to prepare a interne report. So it is an opportunity for the students to know about the field of business through the internship program. So Bachelor of business Administration is a specialized course. Stamford University Bangladesh organizes this four years specialized course to provide some efficient graduates in the business sector of the country .The whole course design is not limited within the theoretical boundary but it it also extend to the practical exposure through the internships program . The internship program is a require course for student who are completing Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) from Stamford University. It is a four credit hour program with duration of three months .Student who have completed all the courses are eligible for this program. In the Interne program the attached to The City Bank Limited for two months, days starting from June 6 ,2009 to August 13 ,2009 . During this period have learned about the banks and
the facilities that are providing by them. Only theoretical knowledge without any practical experience makes a person sterile. On the other hand a person having practical experience but no theoretical exposure keeps him blind. The internships program is designed to overcome such position . Bank is a service oriented organization .So the orientation has been made as an integral part of the BBA degree. The outcome of the report is the result of in\immense supportive effort with a large group of personnel of the bank along with the trainers, banking experts and my respected supervision teacher.

But the following factors seem to me as the some points of weakness of this study, despite all out co-ordination from the bank officials. o
One of the notable limitations of this report is bank’s policy of not disclosing some data and information for obvious reasons, which could be very much useful.
o o o o o
Entrance to every nock and corner of the bank was not possible for me. The main constraint of the study is inadequate access to information. Another problem is that creates a lot of confusions regarding verification of data The clients were too busy to provide much time for interview. Web site of CBL was not updated.

in 1983. The Bank started its journey on 27th March 1983 through opening its first branch at B. B. Avenue Branch in the capital, Dhaka city. It was the visionary entrepreneurship of around 13 local businessmen who braved the immense uncertainties and risks with courage and zeal that made the establishment and forward march of the bank possible. Those sponsor directors commenced the journey with only Taka 3.4 crore worth of Capital, which now is a respectable Taka 330.77 crore as capital and reserve. City Bank is among the very few local banks which do not follow the traditional, decentralized, geographically managed, branch based business or profit model. Instead the bank manages its business and operation vertically from the head office through 4 distinct business divisions namely 1.Corporate and Investment Banking; 2.Retail Banking (including Cards); 3.SME Banking; and 4.Treasury and Market Risks. Under a real-time online banking platform, these 4 business divisions are supported at the back by a robust service delivery or operations setup and also a smart IT Backbone. Such centralized business segment based business and operating model ensure specialized treatment and services to the bank's different customer segments. The bank currently has 83 online branches spread across the length and breadth of the country that include a full fledged Islami Banking branch.

VISA Debit Card is another popular product which the bank is pushing hard in order to ease out the queues at the branch created by its astounding base of some 400,000 retail customers. The launch of VISA Prepaid Card for the travel sector is currently underway. City Bank prides itself in offering a very personalized and friendly customer service. It has in place a customized service excellence model called GAP (Graceful-Appropriate-Pleasing) that focuses on ensuring happy customers through setting benchmarks for the bank's employees' attitude, behavior, readiness level, accuracy and timelines of service quality.

The found the following things about the general banking departments General Banking Department •
• • • •
In general banking department they follow the traditional banking system .The entire general banking procedure is not fully computerized . As a result some processing, for example collecting money from the deposit takes some time to perform. The cash counter was previously lacking of manpower but that after that they recruited one more teller and the cash procedure is traditional. There are no computers in the cash section and loan section .That is why sometimes the service is not as prmpt as the customer demand. In case of opening an account some big parties come to open account in reference with the high official of the Bank . They do not submit all papers that are required in openinig an account. According to some clients, introducer is one of the problems in opening an accounting. If a person who is new in the city want to open an account, it is a problem for him/her to arrange an introducer of SB or CD account holder.
5.1 Recommendation : The suggest the following guideline for CBL: 1. Branch should take carefulness about the quality of its services. Quality of service is needed to attract new customer. 2. The customer service of CBL should be dynamic and on time. Without prompt service, bank cannot keep its goodwill in the banking environment. 3. Placement of employees should be based on their skills and abilities. 4.
Reducing loan processing time, branch manager should be given more power to sanction loan. This power can eliminate the time, which would be lapsed in correspondence between head office and branch.
5. It is very important to have a group of people working to gather coming from similar background, who understand and respect each other and maintain clear and continuous communication with each other. 6.

Like its may be bill board add which must be lucrative, and given the TV adds in renowned channel. 11. Personal target fulfill of the employees are not mandatory for some employees, like employees of the cashier, because those persons duties are more complicated than other employees of the bank. 12. SME loan be supposed to be given the B.B Avenue branch, because number of entrepreneur does the business B.B. Avenue areas. If the bank authority opens the SME loan in B.B. Avenue than proficient entrepreneur take the SME loan very quickly and bank earns profit from those entrepreneur. 13. Logo of the City Bank in B.B. Avenue branch are not seen the customer appropriately because of hookers shop covering. Authority will be see the problem and take initiative action. 14. Personal conflict may be occurred but it strictly prohibited when customer are existing in the bank. 15.

As soon as possible, bank authority should be given ATM service to the customer of B.B. Avenue branch according to the customer demand based on conversation with the customers. 18. Branch manager of the bank should arrange the meeting with branch employee which may be formal or informal, because it will help to improve personal relationship within the employees of the branch and the customers as well. 5.2 Conclusions: During the two months internship program at The City Bank Ltd, Shaymoli. Branch, almost all the desks have been observed more or less. This internship program, in last two months have been arranged for gaining knowledge of practical banking and to compare this practical with theoretical knowledge. Compare practical knowledge with theoretical knowledge involves identification of weakness in the branch activities and making recommendations for solving the weakness identified. In this internship program it is not possible to go to the
internship program have not been fulfilled with complete satisfaction. However, highest effort has been given to achieve the objectives of the internship program. So Financing activities is related with progression of operations. Banking sector is very competitive now. At present, there are 48 scheduled commercial banks with more than 6596 branches. The growth rate of deposit and advance was 17.72% and 20.52% respectively. The City Bank Limited (CBL) is one of the first generation banks. At the end of 2007 the bank’s total deposit was Tk.4,09,540 million and advance was Tk.26,788 million and profit before tax stood at Tk. 808 million. City Bank restructured its business in 2007. Now the bank is operating under centralized banking system. New and innovative products are introduced to meet the customer’s demand. Under centralized banking system of City Bank, the branch is considered as retail sales and service outlet. The branch total deposit in 2007 was Tk 461.45 million at current price and Tk.430.46 at constant price (Base year 2003) and the rate of growth was 12.63% and 12.59% respectively. The total advance in 2007 was Tk.138.08 million and Tk.128.75 million and the rate of growth was 20.38% and 20.34% in current price and constant price respectively. Net profit was Tk.11.79 million and Tk.11.00 million in constant price and current price respectively. The study shows that Johnson Road Branch’s operations are increasing very slowly. Each year deposits growth indicates branch’s slightly better movement in the banking field. Sometimes the branch couldn’t meet the business and profit target set by the head office. Sometimes the growth is lower than previous years in respect of deposit, credit, income, expense and profit. Though clients are increasing and ultimately profit is increasing but at a very slow rate. Client’s satisfaction depends on the efficacy of customer service. All operational analysis leads to say that efficacy of customer service of the branch is in the deteriorating situation. The branch is in poor position to attract customer by their service. It is expected that the new innovative products and services will help the branch to perform better by expanding business under centralized banking of City Bank. With the new image of City Bank, the branch can improve sole image in the market and experience and skills as well, with which they are being able to satisfy the customers with their wide range of products and services Bibliography • • • •
