2017 Winners: GSBLSU Bank Management Simulation

Written by Don Woodland | Jun 19, 2017 8:31:24 PM

Every year, the seniors of GSBLSU take part in the Bank Management Simulation course, a computer-based program that is specifically designed to provide students with a look into management and the decision-making process in specific banking areas, such as investments, funds management, risk management, loans, and asset/liability management.

During this simulation, the class is divided into teams. Each team is responsible for effective management and profitability of an 800-million-dollar bank. The computer model (BMSim) allows students to make future decisions for the bank and quickly receive feedback on the effectiveness of these decisions. Students must consider the economy, bank competition, and regulatory constraints when planning and implementing their decisions. During the two-week program, the teams will experience an equivalent of two years in bank management and operations, and the results are examined quarterly by state and federal regulators.

Once the course is completed, winners are selected based on factors such as organization, consistency, earnings, ability to report to shareholders, and how they positioned the bank for the future.

The following students were the 2017 Bank Simulation winners. Each received a letter of recognition, as did their home bank’s president and CEO, along with a certificate of recognition for their outstanding work on the Bank Management Simulation. Please join us in congratulating the 2017 Bank Sim winners!
