If you have C-suite aspirations, I highly recommend this program. The instruction is world-class. Faculty and coaches offer classroom instruction and practical exercises that benefited me as a leader and had a positive impact on our bank’s performance, our customers, our employees and the communities we support. A vital part of this program is also getting away from the day-to-day operations of the bank, spending time immersed in learning with and from peers who are facing the same challenges and opportunities. My classmates will be a valuable network for me for years to come.
