The COB/WSSB affiliation increases collaboration between NMSU and the regional banking industry, resulting in new opportunities for students and faculty.
Two 8-day sessions are held at NMSU in June of two consecutive years. Studies cover current banking practices and all aspects of bank management step-by-step, from profitability to human resources. In-class sessions are supplemented with three correspondence problems that students work on during the year between the two classroom sessions. Each correspondence problem requires about 30 hours to complete.
The WSSB programs are independent of NMSU’s academic programs.
Students of the WSSB are not awarded academic credit at NMSU.
Background. The Western States School of Banking is a non-profit corporation which provides educational development opportunities to banking professionals. In 2006, the WSSB and NMSU’s College of Business entered into a joint agreement to affiliate the WSSB programs with the college. In June of 2007, the WSSB held its first sessions at NMSU.
The WSSB is supported by the Independent Bankers of Colorado, the Independent Community Bankers Association of New Mexico, the New Mexico Bankers Association, and the Western States Director Education Foundation.
