Commercial Banking Program

The modern banking industry represents an exciting - and growing - career opportunity. Roles within the banking industry vary greatly and include operations, technology, lending and credit risk analysis.

The Commercial Banking Program at Marquette offers a diverse range of courses, including an entry-level course in banking, an overview of the primary leadership functions in the banking environment, and a course focusing on risk management and the risk evaluation process which banks engage in as they execute their duties and responsibilities.

The Commercial Banking Program is accepting applications on an ongoing basis.
