The Stonier Advantage
It begins with you
Stonier’s student body of rising stars has a rich diversity across gender, job title and nature of institution. To date, Stonier has educated more than 20,000 professionals. Most are vice presidents or senior vice presidents; one in five is an executive vice president, chairman or CEO. Attendees hail from community and regional banks, money center banks and international financial institutions (last year’s class attracted students from 21 countries). Roughly 17 percent regulatory agencies. And behind those statistics are smart, ambitious executives on track to become the industry’s future leaders.

The program at Stonier is designed to enhance your ability to address the broad set of issues you will face as a bank or financial industry executive working in a competitive and ever-changing marketplace.
