Many banking institutions have manager training programs. The first thing to do is open a bank account at your local bank. Most banks today make an effort to know their customers. Build relationships with the bank staff and ask for advice. I think you will find they will be happy to explain how the manager training program works and from what institutions of higher education they recruit. Good luck

A finance degree is helpful. Additionally banks offer summer internship. You might also considered work at a bank. When I was a bank manager I would hire college students to work part time

Hi!

To become a bank manager, there are several paths you can follow. If you are planning to go to college, you would want to focus on degrees in the following areas of study: Finance, Accounting, Economics or Business Administration. I also recommend taking classes in personal finance, investments, loans/lending, real estate, and risk management.

Karen’s Answer

You have to start somewhere in the bank. Myself I stated in a very small bank at a low entry level.  Being positive, be eager to learn and volunteer whenever you can. Get noticed be proactive in networking make sure you know everyone in the bank and learn as much as you can about what they do. These early years will be your foundation.  Remember enthusiasm is noticeable and create your own opportunity by loving what you do and thirst for growth and knowledge.

Heather’s Answer

The best way to start is by getting into banking at an entry level position, such as a bank teller. That's how I started in banking as soon as I finished my two years at a community college. You get a lot of experience and learn so much by being a teller. You learn how to deal with money and the public, as well as learning about different banking products, how they work, and how they can benefit your customers. It is also a great idea to take banking classes offered through your employer to further familiarize yourself with banking products and rules. Often your bank will pay for you to take these classes. The more you learn and the more experience you gain, the easier it will be to be promoted in your branch and become a bank manager. Always be yourself and follow your dreams!

Heather recommends the following next steps:

Get a bank teller job
Take banking classes
Get experience in customer service
