The New England School for Financial Studies is comprised of two one-week resident sessions that provide students with 135 hours of classroom instruction conducted by distinguished faculty members chosen for their expertise in both the academic and business worlds. Classes combine lectures with case studies to involve participants actively in the process of research, analysis and creative planning. Between sessions, students complete five assigned independent study projects that focus on their bank and build on the first week’s instruction to prepare them for more advanced training during the second-year resident session. The course culminates in a comprehensive computerized simulation which challenges students to assume senior management responsibilities. The New England School of Finance Program provides professional growth opportunities to employees of member banks and those in the financial services industry. The two-year intensive program curriculum focuses on topics such as financial management, technology, lending, marketing, and other strategic industry issues.
