What People Are Saying

I love the structure of the EDI program. I was only out of the bank for 12 days over the course of 19 months and the time spent with instructors, coaches and fellow attendees was incredibly valuable in terms of sharpening leadership skills and fostering new and innovative ideas. In addition, the projects between sessions are meaningful and provide real results that add dollars to the bottom line–no case studies or theories. I would highly recommend this program.

Becoming a well-rounded, top-notch community banker does not occur by accident. Real life experience is required, along with a combination of hands-on learning and education. GSBC provides the second part of that equation with an excellent faculty and comprehensive curriculum covering financial analysis, lending, management, technology and leadership. This training provides a solid foundation to continue our officers’ career development.
