Werner receives prestigious banking diploma
Michele Werner, Executive Vice President of State Bank of Toledo, has graduated from the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado’s state-of-the-art graduate school of banking program. Werner was among 141 graduates of the class of 2021 honored in a ceremony on July 29, 2021, in Boulder, Colo.
Students graduate from the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado (GSBC) upon successfully completing three annual two-week sessions of classroom training on the University of Colorado Boulder campus in Boulder, Colo., and six immersive intersession research projects between sessions and throughout the year. Courses covering four career areas are delivered by community-banking experts and include financial management, technology, leadership and lending.
The program’s capstone course is an in-depth bank management simulation, where students assume the roles of senior management of a commercial bank, involving themselves in the group dynamics and managerial skills of managing a bank in a competitive environment with changing economic conditions.
“The coursework and projects associated with GSBC strive to enhance the skills of community bankers around the country,” said GSBC President Michael Stevens. “The ultimate beneficiary will be the consumers and businesses in the communities where these financial professionals serve.”
GSBC will host its 71st Annual School Session July 17-29, 2022. GSBC also offers other educational programs concerning community banks throughout the year. For more information, contact GSBC at 800-272-5138 or GSBC@GSBColorado.org.
