May 29, 2015 —A group of University of Utah students from the David Eccles School of Business took top honors at the 2015 Inaugural Community Bank Case Study Competition in San Francisco this week.
The competition was established by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) to build a further understanding of the community banking business model, to connect students with senior bank management, and to serve as a research tool for uncovering new and innovative perspectives regarding the role of community banks in the economy.
Student teams submitted video presentations and written case studies that were judged based on the teams’ detailed assessment of the bank, analysis of the institution and overall quality and professionalism of the project.The University of Utah’s team included Jenny Flatberg, Changsu Lee, Kurt Moore, and Brett Welker. Jack Brittain, a professor of management in the Eccles School, was the team’s faculty advisor.

State banking regulators supervise approximately 5,000 state‐chartered financial institutions.
