Focus on Community Banking

We recognize the importance of community banks and the role they play in their communities and local economies, and are committed to providing the training and skills necessary for them to thrive amidst challenges in the economic and regulatory environment long term. And like community banks, relationships are a priority at GSBC. Our students interact closely with our expert faculty in classroom sizes conducive to peer-learning and interaction. Class discussions, case examples and projects are targeted at issues faced by senior managers of community banks, all to provide the technical training and leadership skills needed by the next generation of community bank managers.

Lessons Learned From an Extraordinary 70th Annual School Session

July 27, 2021

GSBC on July 30 wrapped up its 70th anniversary session. This is an important milestone in the school’s history and the courage and vision of the Colorado Board of Regents and the Colorado Bankers Association. To plan and execute the curriculum and logistics for more than 500 students as the country emerges from a year long lockdown was a challenge to say the least.

The education that is available at GSBC's Executive Development Institute is second to none. EDI gave me an immense understanding of community banking while simultaneously cultivating innovative ideas that provided real results to my organization. One of the most valuable things of EDI was the opportunity to create close friendships and professional connections with my classmates.
