Barrancotto Earns LSU Graduate School of Banking Honor
Kassie Barrancotto, Lender and South Acadia Office Branch Manager at Synergy Bank, recently graduated from the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University.
“The Graduate School of Banking at LSU was a great opportunity to expand my knowledge of banking and deepen my relationships with other professionals in the industry,” Barrancotto said. “It serves as an additional resource to use when assisting my customers and broadens my expertise to provide exceptional local customer service.”
The Graduate School of Banking is a three-year program that provides courses covering all aspects of banking, economics, and related subjects. Students traveled from 21 states to participate in this session.
Sponsored by 15 southern state bankers associations in cooperation with the Division of Continuing Education at LSU, the banking school requires attendance on campus for three years, with extensive bank study assignments between sessions. The faculty consists of bankers, business and professional leaders, and educators from all parts of the United States.
During their three summer sessions at the Graduate School of Banking, students received 190 hours of classroom instruction, planned evening study, and final examinations at the end of each session.
