The Southeastern School of Banking offers a 70-hour general banking curriculum. Serving Tennessee financial institutions since 1939, the two-year school incorporates lectures and home study assignments. Students from both years attend classes during the same week. Some of the topics covered in the first year are bank financial analysis, macroeconomics, asset/liability management, investments, lending, business planning, managing liquidity/capital planning, sales management, and HR management. Students will also use the nationally recognized ABA BankExec Game to learn about financial institution management. The second-year general banking classes include managing up skills, a fraud overview, ethics in banking, trust services, credit and credit scoring, technology in banking, the changing bank environment, bank security, management, and completion of the ABA BankExec Game. This school is a must for career bankers.
