The Graduate School of Banking at LSU has become a mainstay of training for examiners at the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions. For years, we have looked to GSB to help take and keep our exam program at a high level.

By the time I graduated, I knew that I was leaving GSBLSU with not only a stronger knowledge of all aspects of banking, but also leaving with friendships that I will value throughout my banking career and for a long time after my career has ended.

The Graduate School of Banking at LSU really prepares oneself for the everchanging financial world. The wide variety of class topics, along with the flexible electives, and popular bank simulation gives a great overall understanding that can be tailored to any bank setting throughout our country.

The school stressed knowledge, competence, relationships, community involvement, and humble leadership. The remaining two years further solidified my relationships with professors and students, continued to deepen my theoretical and practical knowledge of banking, and culminated in applying all we learned in a two-week bank simulation.

I believe graduating from GSBLSU is a vital component in progressing through my banking career.  This is where I want to be.  The caliber, prestige and expectations of the program are something I am proud to embrace and be a part of.

The school has far surpassed what I thought it was going to give me.  Lasting relationships. The incredible network of bankers and vendors to bankers. If you have any questions, your network is like having a banking rolodex that you couldn’t compile in 100 years.

The Graduate School of Banking at LSU taught me so many lessons that I could apply to my day-to-day life immediately.  I truly appreciate this school for the instruction and direction, and I truly appreciate my bank for investing in my future.
