The GSBC Experience

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.

What People Are Saying

My GSBC experience was truly wonderful. The classes are well-structured and taught by knowledgeable instructors covering many of the issues community bankers are faced with today, and in preparing for future challenges. The students come from organizations all over the country and bring a unique diversity to the in-class discussions. There are numerous networking opportunities to meet and connect with peers, and I am thankful to have met so many other professionals and friends. Last but certainly not least, the entire experience takes place in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, with its incredible views and endless outdoor adventures nearby.

My experience at GSBC was nothing short of outstanding. Beyond the beautiful scenery, unlimited activities and exciting culture that Boulder provides, my three years in the program afforded me a career opportunity of a lifetime. I learned so much, and cannot place a value on the connections, friendships and experiences gained as a result of attending the program. Going forward, I will forever be GSBC’s most vocal cheerleader and advocate!
