Student Life

Networking

The tight-knit campus community facilitates lifelong professional relationships. Students are required to work in study teams and will be assigned to teams each year for small group learning. In between sessions, students will be assigned home study assignments to supplement material learned in class. The total time for completing each year’s assignments varies per student, but typically ranges between 50-100 hours.

Location

Our resident session is held at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. Widely known for its beautiful campus, Furman provides the perfect location to live and learn while attending CBA's Executive Banking School. Updated, executive-quality classrooms provide state-of-the-art technology. The campus is equipped with wireless Internet capabilities allowing students to remain connected with those at home and at the office while away.
