Bring "what-if" technology to your institution and build a world-class management team.
SWGSB has modernized the bank simulation experience to meet the digital age – making it truly user friendly.
BankCEO is a one-of-a-kind experience that distills years of bank management down to a series of well-focused decisions and applications.

BankCEO is the SW Graduate School of Banking's own proprietary, online bank simulation program. It is designed specifically to provide banking officers real-world experience.

  • Online, real-time access from classroom or office
  • Instant reporting
  • Multi-user departmental decision making
  • Full graphics and reporting of bank's position and comparison to peers
  • Simulation previews that allow participants to explore "what-if" scenarios before final decision submissions
  • "As needed" reporting which gathers and presents information only when required
  • Online Help Desk — virtually eliminating need for users manual

BankCEO Defined

BankCEO participants are members of a management team that has responsibility for the operation of a virtual mid-size commercial bank. They deal with many of the financial and operational aspects faced regularly by senior officers in banks across the country, including:

  • Competing in a dynamic marketplace and making decisions to respond to changes in the economic environment (e.g., economic forecasting)
  • Competing aggressively against other banks in the virtual community for deposits and loans
  • Analyzing critically the position of their virtual bank, establishing objectives, and determining the policies most likely to achieve those objectives
  • Making appropriate decisions on how best to use the people, services, and resources of the virtual organization
  • Managing and directing their virtual bank's investment and loan portfolio, deposit generation strategy, capital position, cash flow, and profitability
  • Adhering to bank regulatory authorities and being held accountable for violations of their rules and regulations

Management decisions generate appropriate, real-world responses. This immediate feedback of decision consequences is what sets SWGSB's BankCEO apart.
