GSRBM, now marking its 62nd year, offers the banking industry's top talent the knowledge and skills they need to develop into the leaders of tomorrow. Designed and delivered by leading industry practitioners, the program immerses students in real world scenarios experienced daily by retail banks. Students participate in one-of-a-kind simulation exercises that challenge them to run the entire consumer business of a bank. They learn how to analyze and use financial data to influence a bank’s future performance, and they dive into an executive level virtual experience that requires them to manage a bank from the top down. Enhancements made this year to the MarketSim banking simulation will further put the focus where it belongs on the customer, and includes enhanced marketing decisions and focus on delivery channels. Students are anchored on a path to leadership and graduate with a deep understanding and appreciation of how various segments of retail banking are interrelated.

Applications for the July 20-30, 2014 GSRBM session are due by May 15, 2014. For more information about GSRBM, please visit our website.
