GSB Graduates to Now Receive Certificate of Executive Leadership from Wisconsin School of Business

The Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is more than an exceptional banking school—it’s  a powerful  leadership  program. Thanks to an agreement with the Wisconsin School of Business’ Center for Professional and Executive Development, students who begin GSB in 2015 will receive a Certificate of Executive Leadership from the Wisconsin School of Business, in addition to a GSB diploma, after successfully completing the rigorous 25-month program.

GSB’s commitment to leadership development began in 1945, and continues proudly today. The Certificate of Executive Leadership—the highest level certificate available through the Wisconsin School of Business—showcases the rigor and depth of GSB’s outstanding program, as recognized by one of the nation’s premier business schools. Leadership-focused courses and relevant real-world projects include:

  • Comprehensive Leadership Skills Inventory—with analysis and feedback from a certified  LSI consultant
  • Leading Beyond  Managing
  • Industry focused Strategic Thinking
  • Competitive Advantage
  • Performance Management
  • Authentic Leadership
  • Talent Management and Succession 
  • Organizational Culture—including a robust cultural assessment tool 
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Inspirational Leadership 
  • Business Ethics
  • Bank Management Simulation—GSB  capstone course features real-world team-building and skills application
  • The deadline to apply for the 2015 session of the Graduate School of Banking is June 15; however, space is limited  and early applications are strongly encouraged.

“Leadership  is about  making all those around you better—your  bank, your community, your industry. For the banker that wants to become a leader, the GSB experience is critical. For the bank that wants to have leaders, the GSB investment is essential.”
