WHY GSBC

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.

GSBC

Peeking Around the Inflation Corner

In 2021, GSBC launched its first-ever peer group initiative where new students of the Annual School Session were assigned to groups of up to 10 of their peers. The purpose of the peer groups was to ignite relationship building by facilitating connections virtually prior to the start of the session. We know relationship building is a tremendous value to banking schools in general and in our opinion, the sooner we get that started the better.

What People Are Saying

Attending GSBC allows you the opportunity to connect with and expand your network and allows you to be challenged in an educational environment. All of this contributes to a well-rounded banker, and I am so grateful to have had this experience.

ANNUAL SCHOOL SESSION

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.
