Pacific Coast Banking School (PCBS) and the Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) have recently partnered to promote advanced education for diverse and high-potential leaders in the financial services industry.Â Â
For 73 years, Pacific Coast Banking School (PCBS) has offered a premier 25 month graduate-level leadership and financial management education program focused on the banking industry.Â Over 10,000 bankers have graduated from this school, with hundreds currently in key leadership roles across the country.Â Highly qualified participants in the banking and financial services community benefit from outstanding instruction, cutting-edge curriculum, and the diverse student body from organizations of all sizes.Â Â
One way in which the UFSCÂ and Pacific Coast Banking School have manifested their relationship is to jointly fund a full program scholarship to PCBS.Â Students enroll in a 25 month program, which includes a two-week resident session each August for three years held on the University of Washington campus.Â The 2011 session dates are August 21 â September 2 and the tuition is $4,295, which includes a registration fee, single room accommodations, meals and classes, along with administrative and faculty support for intersessionÂ work.Â Last yearâs scholarship amount was about 80% of this tuition, $3,400 per year for three years.Â Future scholarship amounts will be dependent upon the contribution from the FSC-PSÂ Charitable Foundation, which PCBS will match up to a certain amount on an annual basis.Â The remaining tuition balance is the responsibility of the applicant.Â
The UFSCÂ goal to create leadership opportunities for those in the financial services industry is enhanced by this partnership with Pacific Coast Banking School, one of the largest banking schools in the country. Â Anyone interested in the âRise Above the Restâ¢â scholarship opportunity or the PCBSÂ program is encouraged to visit the PCBS website at www.thePCBS.com.
