Executive Development Program- *Hybrid

 2025 Registration Coming This Fall

The Executive Development Program (EDP) is an intensive, year-long program designed to challenge and develop your most talented up-and-coming managers. Class sessions led by seasoned professional instructors help them acquire the strategic, financial management and communication skills required for successful leadership of financial institutions in today’s demanding marketplace.

EDP provides a special one-on-one mentorship program – one of only a few such opportunities in the country – pairing student participants with executives from their institutions. Mentorship is vital to student success and offers bank executives an opportunity to be directly involved in the development of future.

Mentors support their mentee on a monthly basis by reinforcing the classroom learning experience, making introductions to key executives within the bank, and pairing students with business experts for assistance in their homework preparation.

We ensure your bankers participating in EDP are provided with:

  • A convenient schedule designed with the busy professional in mind. Classes take place once a month over a twelve-month course period and only 6-8 hours of homework prior to each class
  • Many opportunities to network with class peers, as well as program alumni
  • Practical skills and lessons that can be put into immediate practice
  • A solid foundation for their career and an excellent precursor to Graduate Banking School
