Graduates receive their GSBC diplomas upon successfully completing three annual two-week sessions of classroom training on the University of Colorado Boulder campus in Boulder, CO. These individuals were among 169 students honored in a ceremony on July 28, 2022.
GSBC’s curriculum is community banking-focused and delivered by expert faculty. All courses fall under one of four tracks: Financial Management & Strategy, Innovation & Engagement, Leadership & Culture or Lending.
The graduates also completed six immersive intersession research projects throughout the program, including a strategic topic project that they tied directly to an issue or opportunity facing their organization.
The program’s capstone course is an in-depth bank management simulation, where students assume the roles of senior management of a commercial bank, involving themselves in the group dynamics and managerial skills of managing a bank in a competitive environment with changing economic conditions.
