Designed by experienced CFOs especially for financial managers, this week-long school goes beyond the basics to present best practices and provide community financial institution financial managers the tools to build a solid foundation in asset/liability management. Learn the unique concepts and terminology of bank finance and asset/liability management along with the practical implementation tools to profitably manage a financial institution’s balance sheet, develop effective strategies and communicate strategies to the board and senior management that ensure effective decision-making.

An integrated case study will be used daily during the school to identify major financial strengths and weaknesses of institutions, examine interest rate risk profiles, evaluate issues relating to base strategy forecasts, analyze loan and investment portfolios, make pricing decisions and formulate and communicate effective strategies to improve the institution’s overall profitability.

Who Should Attend
CFOs and others in senior management actively involved in the financial management responsibilities of small- to medium-sized financial institutions. Financial managers who have day-to-day experience with asset/liability management, investments, budgeting and reporting activities will benefit from this in-depth peer and process immersion in asset/liability management.
Graduate School of Banking – HR Management School
Human Resource Management School – Linking The HR Function To Bottom-Line Profitability
April 10-15, 2016 (Enrollment deadline March 10)

Today’s successful human resource professional in the financial services industry needs a clear understanding of critical human resource issues as well as a working knowledge of the business of banking. From recruitment to selection, performance management to career development, the human resource function has a direct impact on a financial institution’s productivity and bottom-line results.

That’s why GSB offers the Human Resource Management School, a respected one-week school that provides the foundation for new or veteran human resource professionals to tie together important issues in human resource management with an understanding of the business of banking.

Daily application exercises each afternoon will allow you to use material learned in the morning sessions and apply concepts in real-world situations. This applied learning is a key benefit of participating that will give you important tools to implement immediately at your bank.

This exceptional one-week school is available for traditional resident students—or, online through a live Internet Webcast—to allow HR professionals to gain critical knowledge about banking, human resource management and employee performance through a learning format that fits individual needs. The live Webcast will provide streaming video and audio over the Internet, and will allow for interactive participation. It’s like sitting in the classroom, from the convenience of your office.
