Great news from Texas Southern University! The university’s Jesse H. Jones School of Business has created a new academic program giving students direct exposure to commercial banking.
The new Future Bankers Leadership Program (FDLP) which is set to start during the Fall 2021 semester will introduce TSU business students to the banking industry by giving them a combination of formal curriculum, interaction with executives and industry mentors, and commercial banking internships.
FDLP is an endowed program in partnership with the Texas Bankers Association, Risk Management Association (RMA) – a Credit Essentials Certificate program, and local and national bankers.
“The commercial banking concentration will be at the undergraduate level, offering foundational knowledge and the critical skills necessary for students looking to enter the financial services sector,” a press release issued by TSU stated.
There are also plans to expand the program by including classes in financial technology, banking compliance and governance, a certificate program, and an initiative that will encourage students majoring in other disciplines to develop banking industry interests.
The FDLP curriculum was created by Dr. David Yen, dean of the JHJ School of Business, and Dr. Zahid Iqbal, JHJSB associate dean and finance faculty member.
