General Requirements

 

The AAS in Finance-Banking provides training in the financial services industry. The HCC School of Finance is fortunate to have a long standing relationship (over 37 years) with the American Institute of Banking (AIB), the educational branch of the American Bankers’ Association, located at 1120 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20036, 512.472.8388. This link is provided by the Texas Bankers’ Association (TBA), which is the local training provider for the AIB and helps with assistance and placement within the finance industry.
The following courses are given simultaneous credit with the American Banker’s Association: BNKG 1303 (Principles of Bank Operations), BNKG 1340 (Money and Banking), BNKG 1345 (Consumer Lending), BNKG 1349 (Commercial Lending), BNKG 1351 (Selling Bank Products and Services), BNKG 1353 (Mortgage Lending), BNKG1356 (Analyzing Financial Statements), BUSG 1303 (Principles of Finance), and IBUS 2339 (International Banking). Other college courses taken within the Finance - Banking program are given transfer credit toward American Banker’s Association (ABA) diplomas at their discretion.

Although the major emphasis of the program is on commercial banking, the AAS degree may be used in a broad range of financial service areas. Upon consultation with the Finance-Banking department, students may tailor their curriculum to fit the type of financial business desired.

In addition, please note that a student may only earn one Occupational Skills Award (OSA) per academic year.
