I would like to edit cventry in banking style to get something like this:

enter image description here In fact I got something really similar, but I am having problems with the concept and to create tabulars. I would like that, if the Description parameter is bigger than one line, it still continues in the same "table", and that the Description and the Degree are all in the same line. Currently I have this:

enter image description here Where, as you can see, the Description parameter has been manually tabulated with \qquad, and it is not in the same line or table

For minimal changes to your code, use this:

\newlength\descriptionindent
\setlength\descriptionindent{\widthof{\qquad\qquad\quad}}
\renewcommand*{\cventry}[7][.25em]{%
  \cvitem[#1]{#2}{%
    {\bfseries#3}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#4}{}}{}{, {\slshape#4}}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#5}{}}{}{, #5}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}%
    .\strut%
    \ifx&#7&%
    \else{\newline{}\hspace*{\descriptionindent}\begin{minipage}[t]{\dimexpr\linewidth-\descriptionindent\relax}\small#7\end{minipage}}\fi}}

Note what we've done:

  • Created a new length for 'description indent'
  • Changed the width of the minipage to be the line width less this indent
  • Indented the minipage itself with this indent

I'd recommend tuning \descriptionindent to line up better.

We can do this too:

\renewcommand*{\cventry}[7][.25em]{
  \begin{tabular}{@{}p{0.1\maincolumnwidth}@{\hspace{\separatorcolumnwidth}}
                                    p{\dimexpr0.9\maincolumnwidth-\hintscolumnwidth}@{}}%
    {#2} & {\bfseries#3}%
     \ifthenelse{\equal{#4}{}}{}{, {\slshape#4}}%
     \ifthenelse{\equal{#5}{}}{}{, #5}%
     \ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}%
     .\strut%
  \end{tabular}%
  \ifx&#7&%
  \else{\\%
    \hspace*{\dimexpr0.1\maincolumnwidth+\separatorcolumnwidth\relax}%
    \begin{minipage}{\dimexpr0.9\maincolumnwidth-\separatorcolumnwidth\relax}%
      \small#7%
