Next Generation Bankers Academy
You don’t have to leave Pennsylvania for
a career in finance!
The Next Generation Bankers Academy is an intense, one-week experiential learning experience for college students interested in understanding more about careers in the financial services industry or government oversight. Learning modules on site at multiple banks provides real world application for students. Working with executives and managers of community banks, the Department of Banking and Securities, FDIC (invited), the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (invited), and others, participants will get hands-on training and learn what happens behind the scenes at a community bank.
Attending the Next Generation Bankers Academy is a great opportunity to prepare for an internship and, ultimately, a career in banking or bank supervision.

the Next Generation Bankers Academy?
Succession planning is an area of
intense focus for both banks and bank regulators. As senior executives and
career employees approach retirement, banks and regulators are rising to meet
the challenge of maintaining “bench strength” with the next generation of
leaders, to ensure continuity of institutional knowledge and professional
excellence. Early exposure to financial services and regulatory work through
the Next Generation Bankers Academy is intended to get you interested in a
career path that intersects with our work.
Students will have an exclusive opportunity to learn from and network with community bank presidents and senior managers.
The Next Generation Bankers Academy is a collaborative offering from the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities, the Pennsylvania Bankers Association and the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers.
