Media Advisory

Nineteen graduate students of banking from Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut will be recognized on Friday, Aug 3, at 6:15 in Alumni House on the Fairfield University campus. They are among the first group of bankers to earn executive MBAs in Community Bank Management through a joint program of Fairfield University's Charles F. Dolan School of Business and the National School of Banking of America's Community Bankers (ACB).

Designed specifically for bankers, the executive MBA program is an innovative effort that combines the National School of Banking's training in banking and finance with a a 12-month capstone program with a global perspective, taught by faculty from Fairfield University's AACSB-accredited Dolan School of Business. The 19 graduate students completed the degree requirements by attending on-campus summer residence sessions and studying in distance learning courses.

Among the 14 banking institutions represented are People's Bank, GE Capital, Naugatuck Savings Bank, New Haven Savings Bank, Ulster Savings Bank and Farmington Savings Bank.
