The first Stonier graduating class in 1935 had 228 men. Over the years, we have made significant strides in attracting more women to the school, and our hope is to increase the number of women graduates. If you are a female financial services professional considering applying to Stonier, the following students would enjoy talking to you and providing insights into the Stonier experience from their individual perspectives.

“Today’s banks need commitment from women like you, who are leaders in your organizations, communities and families. Your creativity, skill and insight will help us as we navigate a challenging future filled with fierce competition.

Our success will rest on training and executive development, such as that provided by Stonier. I urge women in banking to take advantage of these opportunities. You are doing yourselves, your bank and the industry a great service when you invest in your own advancement.” – Dorothy Savarese, Chair and CEO, Cape Cod Five
