ICBND is very excited to work with Bismarck State College (BSC) and North Dakota State University (NDSU) to offer our members a two-year School of Agricultural Lending. This year’s session will be held June 18-22, 2018 at the National Energy Center of Excellence, 1200 Schafer Street, on the Bismarck State College campus.
The ICBND School of Agricultural Lending will provide:
- Practical, hands-on curriculum designed for learning by doing and for easy application at the bank
- Case studies including Ag Bank Sim
- Small class size (limt 40) to increase networking opportunities and personalized instruction
- A school designed and governed by bankers and taught by experienced bankers, consultants and college professors
- Reasonable enrollment fees and an academic atmosphere conducive to a simulating learning experience.
The curriculum for the ICBND School of Agricultural Lending is designed to provide you with the practical aspects of agricultural credit & finance, farm management, marketing & related subjects. The core curriculum was developed by local North Dakota Community Ag Lenders in conjunction with NDSU and BSC Agribusiness faculty.
