What is the Bank Executive Academy?

Illinois Bankers Association has partnered with GoalMakers to bring you the foundations of a traditional MBA curriculum in the new Bank Executive Academy. Learn, understand, and apply the best practices of organizational leadership and business finances with the knowledge and resources to immediately improve your bank. This program targets new and experienced banking leaders and managers to enhance your professional knowledge to help you and your team thrive.

The Bank Executive Academy will teach you organizational leadership skills, help you understand the ins and outs of financials and how they affect your bottom line, teach you to empower your entire team, help you identify your right markets, and streamline ways to better serve them, and so much more!

Built for the busy professional, and keeping in mind that you are working full-time, the program is completely virtual and optimized for the modern learner. It’s no secret that eLearning is the most efficient way to learn, providing an easy anywhere, anytime accessible learning experience.

In addition to our IBA bank leaders, you will have the opportunity to join leaders from across the country as this program will help you network and learn with your peers.
