PURPOSE AND PHILOSOPHY
The Mississippi School of Banking, established in 1970 by the Mississippi Bankers Association, provides the practicing banker an integrated and complete set of usable courses covering all aspects of banking, as well as overall bank management. The School fosters academic and social interactions with fellow bankers conducive to joint bank problem solving at the School and later in the workplace. The curriculum is designed as a stepping stone to graduate banking schools.
