AIB (American Institute of Banking) and BAF (Banking and Finance) courses offer equivalent content although AIB courses also provide dual enrollment credit toward an AIB Diploma whereas BAF courses do not; it is the intent of the college to offer the courses with the AIB prefix whenever possible for this reason.
