The Graduate School of Banking at LSU is excited to announce for the 2019 Session that our students will be able to submit their bank study projects on-line. We are working with LSU’s Digital and Continuing Education department to use Moodle (a learning management system) to begin the transition to a paperless environment. Moodle provides an easy-to-navigate and universally accessible interface. Moodle is secure and student information is private. For example, students won’t be able to see each other’s grades or assignments.
Students will be sent an email a week or so prior to the session with login information and Moodle instructions on how to upload the bank study projects. Faculty will be able to grade the projects and return grades to students in a timely manner through Moodle.
The Graduate School of Banking at LSU focuses on providing an advanced, well-rounded financial education that will allow our graduates to grow in their careers and excel in their fields. It is with great pride that we look back on our graduates, where they began, and the success they now enjoy. Alumni such as Debbie Crowder of SunTrust Banks, are prime examples of the illustrious careers GSBLSU students can go on to pursue.
As Head of Branch Banking, Debbie leads SunTrust’s most high-profile business line, a role in which she has excelled. She has implemented positive changes, such as the institution’s leadership development program, in order to help the employees of over 1,200 branches reach their full potential. As a result of her efforts, Debbie has received multiple prestigious awards, including the “Cultural Champion” award from BI Worldwide, and most recently, being named one of American Banker’s 2018 Women to Watch.
Debbie’s list of accomplishments is extensive and impressive, and the Graduate School of Banking at LSU is proud to count her among our thousands of accomplished graduates. Congratulations, Debbie. We are excited to see what else the future holds.
