The Graduate School of Banking at Colorado (GSBC) is proud to announce the graduation of Leah Motschenbacher of CCFBank in Eau Claire, Wis., from its state-of-the-art graduate school of banking program.
Graduates receive their GSBC diplomas upon successfully completing three annual two-week sessions of classroom training on the University of Colorado Boulder campus in Boulder, Colo. Motschenbacher was among 168 students honored in a ceremony on July 28, 2022.
GSBC’s curriculum is community banking-focused, delivered by expert faculty. All courses fall under one of four tracks: Financial Management & Strategy, Innovation & Engagement, Leadership & Culture or Lending.
The graduates also completed six immersive intersession research projects throughout their time in the program, including a strategic topic project which they tie directly to an issue or opportunity facing their organization.
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.
GSBC held its 71st Annual School Session July 17–29, 2022, on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, hosting nearly 500 students from across the nation.
