The learning objectives of the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado’s Annual School Session are focused on four general career tracks:

  1. Financial Management
  2. General Management & Technology
  3. Leadership & Human Resources
  4. Lending

The career tracks serve only as examples of coursework students may choose to complete. Students must complete required core coursework and are free to choose any electives offered, regardless of which track they choose to emphasize.

After taking a set of foundational core classes in year one, students may begin customizing their educational experience by choosing among an array of electives organized by four academic tracks. Intersession research projects and evening presentations focus on current issues affecting community banks and will provide direct takeaways to enhance organizational performance. Curriculum is subject to change.
