Take your Graduate School of Banking in Colorado certificate (GSBC) and turn it into an MS in Finance or MBA
When you finish your course work with the Graduate School of Banking in Colorado (GSBC), come and add an MBA or MS in Finance degree with the University of Colorado Denver Business School.
We have teamed up with the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado to allow graduates of their program to augment their education with either an MS in Finance or an MBA. GSBC is located at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
With your previous work at GSBC, you earn your MBA with as few as 21 additional semester hours.
GSBC Course Work
The course work you do with the Graduate School of Banking in Colorado will be applied to your MBA or MS in Finance in the following way:
- If you complete the entire three-year program, you're eligible to have nine semester credit hours awarded for FNCE6365, Banking Principals and Practices.
- If you waived the first year's course work and came in as a second-year student to the BSBC program, you may have six semester credit hours awarded for FNCE6365, Banking Principles and Practices, after you have completed the GSBC coursework.
Banking Principles and Practices
FNCE6365 will count as Finance Free Electives toward your degree.
As a graduate of the three-year program you will only need to complete the following:
- 21 more semester hours of course work to be awarded an MS in Finance (plus 3 semester hours of the accounting prerequisite if required)
- 39 more semester hours of course work to be awarded a MBA
If you are a graduate of the two-year program, you will be awarded the following degree:
- MS in Finance with only 24 more semester hours of course work (plus 3 semester hours of the accounting prerequisite if required)
- MBA with only 42 more semester hours of course work
These credits are issued at a rate of $110 per credit, which is much less expensive than regular course credits at the CU Denver Business School.
