The Program

Premier executive education

Stonier is specifically designed to prepare senior-level bankers and regulators for the decision-making and oversight required to navigate in challenging times. The school is focused on providing you with the knowledge and skills to recognize and address high-level management issues, and implement effective solutions.

Leadership courses taught by faculty from the Wharton School are designed to help you take on broader responsibilities, lead change, and create more value for your organization. Initial courses focus on individual styles, skill sets, and development and then turn to more complex managerial and leadership solutions at the enterprise level.

Building success

The intense program is comprised of three one-week sessions, held over a three-year period, plus extension work between sessions. You will learn to develop strategies to be proactive in today’s competitive marketplace, improve the effectiveness of your internal working relationships, and hone your skills in key areas of banking.

The learning experience involves a variety of settings, including lectures, group discussions, computer simulations, team activities, case studies, and peer presentations. A wide range of elective courses enable you to meet your development goals in a highly-personalized fashion. In addition, through a Capstone Strategic Project you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge gained at Stonier to a major initiative within your own organization.
