Boulder, Colorado: Find Big Inspiration in a City of Learners

The town of Boulder, with its iconic Flatirons mountains, historic downtown and blue skies is more than just a pretty setting for the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado (GSBC). Known as an epicenter for education, innovation and research, this city at the foot of the Rockies is sure to be a catalyst for discovery, inspiration and wisdom during your stay—with plenty of adventure, unparalleled views and good food along the way!

When you come to Boulder for GSBC, you’re joining an educational legacy that goes back to 1860 when residents put in an ambitious bid to be the site of the first state university in Colorado. In 1876, the University of Colorado opened, with the first few students having to hop through cattle turnstiles and hike up hills to get to classes.

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.

GSBC was an excellent choice for me when choosing a school to expand my knowledge of the banking industry. I immediately noticed the high quality of the classes, the beauty of the campus and the fantastic community of Boulder, Colorado. I made connections with other professionals in the banking industry that I will cherish for the rest of my career, and friends that I will cherish for life. I am proud to represent the school as an ambassador, as I believe the benefit to the students who attend and their employers is measurable and tangible. GSBC helps make better bankers, better regulators and better members of our communities, and I’m honored to represent the school as an Ambassador.
