Graduate School of Banking - Madison, WI

2018 session dates are July 29-August 10; the enrollment deadline is June 1.

Used to be, banking was banking. But today, the cookie-cutter days of traditional banking have disappeared, replaced by a more complex recipe: banks, thrifts, credit unions, insurance companies and brokerage firms all getting into each other's traditional line of work, all competing for each other's customers. The GSB Senior Management Seminar addresses these changing relationships, with a curriculum that is as new as the challenges bank executives face. We've also designed the program so you can customize it to fit your individual interests and needs.

The Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (GSB) was established in 1945 through the efforts of Dr. Herbert V. Prochnow (who went on to become President of the First National Bank of Chicago), the Dean of the UW School of Commerce, and the Wisconsin Bankers Association. GSB's Graduate School program provides a comprehensive course of study covering industry and management subjects designed to prepare mid and upper level financial services managers for positions of greater responsibility in their organizations.

In addition to these residential programs, GSB undertakes a variety of other activities that enhance the School's value to the banking industry. These activities include:

  • Development and delivery of special topic online seminars for banking professionals.
  • International Bankers Program -- a special two-week program of study for international bankers who seek a greater understanding of American Banking.
