Seniors at GSBLSU participate 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 critical areas such as investments, funds management, risk managements, loans, and asset/liability management. 

In the simulation, the class is divided into teams with each being responsible for effective management and profitability of an $800 million dollar bank.  The computer model (BMSim) allows students to make decisions for the future of the bank and quickly receive feedback regarding the effectiveness of their actions.  Factors such as the economy, competition, and regulatory constraints must all be taken into account for optimal outcomes.  Over the course of the two week program, teams will experience an equivalent of two years in bank management and operations, and the results are examined quarterly by state and federal regulators.

At the completion of the course, winners are selected based on factors such as organization, consistency, earnings, ability to report results to shareholders, and to position the bank for the future.

The following students were the 2016 Bank Simulation winners. Each winner received a letter of recognition, as did their home bank's president and CEO, along with a certificate of recognition for the outstanding work on the Bank Management Simulation.  Please join us in congratulating the 2016 Bank Sim winners!

2015 WINNERS: GSBLSU Bank Management Simulation

Posted by Don Woodland on Dec 23, 2015 9:00:00 AM

students_in_class-1.jpgThe Bank Management Simulation course utilizes a computer-based learning exercise designed to give participants an overview of the bank management decision making process. Students develop strategies for the management of functional bank areas, with specific emphasis on planning and decision-making in areas such as loans, deposits, investments, funds management, asset/liability management, risk management, etc. The primary focus is on profitability and growth, but attention also is directed to marketing and pricing of bank services—both current and future.

The senior class is divided into teams, with each team effectively managing an $800 million dollar bank. The computer model allows students to make decisions, to receive quick feedback on the effectiveness of their decisions, and then to make new decisions which adjust bank operations to compensate for a large number of internal and external forces including competition, the economy, and regulatory constraints. Within a two-week period, simulation teams experience the equivalent of two years of bank operations.

The course is supervised by qualified instructors who have extensive real-world banking experience as CEOs, presidents, or examiners. The computer model, (BMSim) or Bank Management Simulation, was developed by the ABA and currently is maintained by a consortium of regional banking schools.  At the end of the course, judges evaluated the quality of the performance of all teams and selected winners.  The winners were selected on organization, consistency, earnings, ability to report results to shareholders, and to position the bank for the future.

The following students were the 2015 Bank Simulation winners. Each winner received a letter of recognition, as did their home bank's president and CEO, along with a certificate of recognition for the outstanding work on the Bank Management Simulation.  Please join us in congratulating the 2015 Bank Sim winners!
