‘‘There is not a better banking school in the country than the SW Graduate School of Banking (SWGSB). If you are serious about your career in banking, the SWGSB program will not only improve your current skill set but also introduce you to what your competitors are doing well.”

The lessons learned in the group settings — from the case studies and BankCEO to the friends I still stay in touch with years later — have allowed me to grow both professionally and personally. I can’t imagine not having this experience to better prepare me to be a first-class banker, especially in today’s ever-changing environment!”
