Covid-19 Update

December 1, 2020

As many of you are aware, the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University had no choice but to suspend its 2020 session (originally scheduled for May 25-June 5) due to the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic.  While this was certainly a difficult decision for the school’s Executive Committee of the board of trustees to make, we know that it was the right decision in the interest of the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and their families.

We are excited to announce that the 2021 session (GSB’s 71st session) will be held as planned from May 24-June 4, 2021.  While our preference is certainly a traditional resident session on the beautiful campus of LSU, we remain cognizant of the ultimate reasons for the decision to suspend the 2020 session: the health and safety of all involved with the school.  To that end, we will still plan for a traditional session, but will also be well-prepared for the possibilities of a virtual or hybrid session, should they be warranted.

Please rest assured that whatever the 2021 session “looks like,” the level of relevance, professionalism, and challenge will remain the same as which GSBLSU has delivered to its more than 16,000 graduates over the past 70+ years.

Recognized as the leader in banking education, the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University is an intensive education program for active bankers and has served the banking industry since 1950.  Students attend three annual sessions and complete ten bank study projects during their course of study.
