As the community banking landscape continues to change, the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado (GSBC) continues to equip and empower community bankers to grow and evolve by forging strategic partnerships with higher education institutions.

GSBC’s newest partnership is with the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst. GSBC graduates can apply their GSBC education toward nine credits of UMass Amherst’s Masters of Business of Administration program, and receive a 10 percent tuition discount on their Master of Science in Accounting, Master of Science in Business Analytics, Graduate Certificate in Business Analysis and Graduate Certificate in Forensic Accounting.

“We are excited to have expanded offerings for our alumni with the addition of the University of Massachusetts Amherst,” said GSBC President Michael Stevens “Adding an additional MBA plus additional Master’s degrees and certifications empowers our alumni to further develop technical skills to lead in the continued evolution of the community bank business model.”

GSBC currently partners with five universities throughout the country to lend an avenue to graduates’ seeking a Master’s degree. By completing GSBC’s 25-month school session, graduates can apply their GSBC education toward various master’s degree programs.
