About Our Students

Students at PCBS come from financial institutions of all sizes - from organizations with fewer than $100 million in assets, to multi-billion dollar megabanks.  While most students are banking professionals, some are regulators, accountants, and attorneys. Together, they offer an interesting mix of perspectives and attitudes that reflect the world as it actually exists, providing an exceptionally rich learning experience.

We believe that there is simply no shortcut to a great education. True mastery of a subject comes not from short, shotgun seminars, but from longer, in-depth classes. These classes include valuable face-to face time with our remarkable instructors allowing students to ask questions and exchange ideas, something we strongly feel is enhanced by the caliber of student who attends PCBS.

We require all of our students to attend all resident sessions. Whereas some programs waive entry level courses for students with an MBA degree, we consider MBA knowledge to be a mastery of the pre-requisites. And because our courses are so industry-focused, there is little redundancy with MBA coursework. In fact, about 20% of our student base already have MBAs. At PCBS, we believe that the caliber of our students sets us apart from our competition, but more importantly contributes to the quality education that will set you apart from yours.

The admissions committee reserves the right to deny any applicant who does not meet the requirements for admission or in order to maintain an appropriate balance in the student body. PCBS does not discriminate on the basis of age, religion, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, veteran status, color, race, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its policies, admissions, or any school-administered programs.
