NATCHEZ — Deanna Bowser, Britton & Koontz Bank senior vice president, is among the 155 bankers who received graduation diplomas in June 2013, from the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University.

This three-year program provides courses covering all aspects of banking, economics and relation subjects. Students travelled from 20 states and Mexico to participate in the 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 U.S.

During their three years at the Graduate School of Banking, students receive 180 hours of classroom instruction, 30 hours of reviews, planned evening study and written final examinations at the end of each session.

Bowser distinguished B&K and herself as part of the winning team in the final bank simulation project. In this assignment, groups of graduating bankers run model banks and compete for winning results under unique conditions over a given timeline.
