The Collaborative Educational Programs of the National Association of Bank Women: Mechanisms for Career Change.
Thomas, Kirk R.; Parker, L. Allen
This case description portrays the educational programs of the National Association of Bank Women designed to meet the special needs of women seeking advancement or career changes in the banking industry. After sketching several shorter programs, the case elaborates upon the collaborative Baccalaureate Degree Program in Management for Women, which is offered at Simmons College in Boston, Mundelein College in Illinois, and Pitzer College in California. This program combines liberal arts, management education, and special training in attitudes and skills less common for women than for men aspiring to executive positions. The program also concentrates college residential requirements in two-week, semi-annual institutes and allows bank women to obtain credits by means of transfer courses, prior work experiences, and independent study. With these credit vehicles and the cooperation of their banks, women can work full-time and still complete the degree in three years. (This case description also includes examples of students who are participating in the management degree program.) (LRA)
