A partnership between Wharton and the American Banking Association has made this three-year program the ideal one to arm graduates with the necessary leadership skills and  training to effectively recognize and handle high-level management issues.

“Our industry continues to face huge challenges,” said Hoag, “from new regulations stemming out of the economic crisis to consumers who demand the latest technologies and the ultimate in service. The Graduate School Banking Degree will definitely help me make our clients more successful. That’s what it’s all about.”
