GSB Graduates Now Receive Certificate of Executive Leadership from Wisconsin School of Business

The Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is more than an exceptional banking school—it’s a powerful leadership program. And, now, thanks to an agreement with the Wisconsin School of Business’ Center for Professional and Executive Development, students who enroll in GSB will receive a Certificate of Executive Leadership from the Wisconsin School of Business, in addition to a GSB diploma, after successfully completing the rigorous 25-month program. GSB’s commitment to leadership development began in 1945, and continues proudly today, with a curriculum that’s been recognized by one of the nation’s premier business schools. The Certificate of Executive Leadership—the highest level certificate available through the Wisconsin School of Business—showcases the rigor and depth of GSB’s outstanding program. Leadership-focused curriculum and relevant real-world projects include:
