The Centre for Business Mathematics and Informatics® (Centre for BMI) was founded in 1997 as a joint initiative between the erstwhile Potchefstroom University (now North-West University) and ABSA Bank Limited (now Barclays Africa Group Limited). The primary aim was to establish a Centre of Excellence in financial risk/reward management training and research to supportthe South African financial services industry. The BMI-concept was developed following a similar relationship that existed at the time between Rabobank and the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam.
