What People Are Saying

I had 26 years of banking experience under my belt when I attended my first year of GSBC, and had no idea the wealth of knowledge I would receive from the wonderful faculty at banking school. I made so many friends who are still great resources for me now. I know my promotion to president of my bank would likely not have happened without the education I received in Boulder!

The program is geared towards promoting personal growth and enhancing leadership skills, as well as providing opportunities to network with other bankers with the same aspirations. Working with a personal coach and a bank CEO mentor is unique to EDI, and is what makes this program a customized experience!
