The Community Bank Case Study Competition encourages students to explore community banking by partnering student teams with local banks to conduct original case studies, focusing on management and board succession planning. The competition is sponsored and managed by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS).
These teams join five other college team finalists as they compete to become the winner of the competition, which will be announced live on Twitter on Thursday, May 25, 2017, during the CSBS state and federal banking regulator forum in New Orleans.
The Kutztown University team is partnered with New Tripoli Bank and the Bloomsburg University team partnered with First Keystone Community Bank. The two Pennsylvania teams were chosen as finalists among 33 undergraduate student teams from universities and colleges across the country.
