Commercial Banking Program

Finance, Insurance & Real Estate

The Commercial Banking Program was established in 2012 to help students prepare for a career in commercial and corporate banking and attract major commercial bank recruiters to Baylor University. The required courses are structured during a student's junior and senior years and consist of a variety of finance and general business electives. These pre-selected electives will not increase the total number of hours for a student's degree requirements.

The Commercial Banking Program is sponsored by the Banking Advisory Council that endows commercial bank scholarships and provides strategic counsel to the Finance Department. Commercial bank representatives serve in an advisory role that includes developing student knowledge and interest in commercial banking. They also provide insight into recent developments in the commercial banking industry.
