The purpose of Stonier is to prepare today’s banking leaders for tomorrow’s opportunities by providing the nation’s premier executive education program.

Unparalleled learning experience
Stonier has provided executive education to more than 20,000 senior-level bankers and regulators, including some of the most respected banking executives in the U.S. The program emphasizes strategic planning, financial management, and leadership and provides a wide range of elective courses to enable you to meet your developmental goals in a highly-personalized fashion. In addition, through a Capstone Strategic Project, you have a unique opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained at Stonier to a major initiative within your own organization.
Enrichment inside the classroom and out
Curriculum and faculty are only part of Stonier’s appeal. What truly sets the school apart is the networking, peer learning and lifelong bonding that Stonier fosters. Students relish the collegiate setting – a place where outdoor group work on the quad replaces the day-to-day activities of the office. Networking lunches, receptions and team projects lead to diverse perspectives, professional connections and friendships that last through graduation and beyond.
Stonier is located at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) in Philadelphia where undergraduate and graduate students have received an Ivy League education for more than two centuries. US News and World Report today ranks Penn 4th in the category of best colleges and universities in the country. The campus is convenient to the Philadelphia International Airport, trains, and buses as well as many shops and restaurants in one of the city’s most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods.
