In this paper have been studied Financial Bankruptcy Risk Prediction based on accounting and market and hybrid models (combining the two above models) with the use of MLP and RBF techniques of neural networks and the results of these techniques are compared based on the mean square error index in the three mentioned models. The results show that the RBF neural network is more efficient than the MLP network in all three models (accounting, market and hybrid variables) and the accuracy of the hybrid model is more than the accounting and market models.
