Watch this short video for an overview of this exceptional school.

Today's successful human resource professional in the financial services industry needs a clear understanding of critical human resource issues as well as a working knowledge of the business of banking. From recruitment to selection, performance management to career development, the human resource function has a direct impact on a financial institution's productivity and bottom-line results.

That's why GSB offers the Human Resource Management School, a respected one-week school that provides the foundation for new or veteran human resource professionals to tie together important issues in human resource management with an understanding of the business of banking.

Application sessions are built into the curriculum to help students better understand and apply concepts learned. This applied learning is a key benefit of participating that will give you important tools to implement immediately at your bank.

More and more demands are being placed on human resource professionals as banks realize the important role they play in a bank's profitability. This is your opportunity to learn from respected industry experts about today's key issues in human resource management and how they relate to the bank's bottom line profits.

We plan to host this program in person in Madison -- and look forward to welcoming students to our beautiful city. However, if you don't wish to travel you can still participate via live stream for the same fee. GSB is committed to following the guidance issued by state and local health officials and will take every recommended precaution for health and safety. Please note that class size may be limited based on public health guidelines in effect at the time of the program. Consideration will be based on date of application.

GSB is also offering risk free enrollment for your peace of mind. You may apply to secure your spot in class without risking a penny -- not even the $350 enrollment deposit that is typically non-refundable. If you cancel, you will receive a full refund or credit on account without penalty.
