Develop the Next Generation of Bank Leadership

Imagine teams of your top talent, working together across business lines and job functions, to affect the future profitability of your bank. With the ABA Business of Banking School®, you put your high performers in the CEO's chair, as part of a unique training solution that blends classroom learning with simulation-based team exercises to prepare your high-potential employees to move into leadership positions. Presented in your bank, at your convenience, and tailored to your culture and policies, this is a flexible and customized program designed to help you address the coming talent crisis.

Working in teams that represent competing banks, participants learn about the industry and test key decision-making skills. Using the BankExec® simulation, the results of each "bank's" decisions are calculated and shared with the group. Students then adjust their strategies and measure the effects on such areas as stock price, liquidity, debt, and profitability.
