The courses taught in the school are approved by the board which is made up of senior bank executives who are graduates and CEO’s of sponsoring state banker associations who deal on a daily basis with banking issues on a state and national scale.

The expertise shared by these experienced individuals provides those who design the courses and curricula of the school valuable insight into issues that banking professionals must address daily.  Among the issues identified as deserving attention at the school were cyber security, cybercrime, technological innovations, non-bank competition, unrestrained bank regulation and personnel recruitment and retention.  These topics will receive the attention of the faculty and students at the 2017 Session.
