What We Offer
A typical day is spent in the classroom at the BB&T University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Our blended learning approach includes instruction from internal facilitators, senior and executive management and outside professionals. You'll have the opportunity to develop your skills in a classroom-style setting, through individual case studies and on-the-job training.
We offer two LDP sessions each year in January and July. The training program is comprised of several successive phases. These phases include subject matter areas such as BB&T culture and values, the banking industry, leadership and self-awareness. You will learn core financial concepts and our credit and underwriting standards. The bulk of your training consists of skills development and on-the-job training in your chosen career concentration. Wrapping up your training, you'll apply your knowledge and skills in a capstone banking simulation.
Success in the program is measured based on academic performance and observed behavior relative to leadership, engagement and interpersonal dynamics.
Candidates participate in one of two career tracks: Business Banking or Corporate functions. LDP Associates collectively participate in over 40% of the training. Approximately 50% of your training is based on your concentration, and the focus of your learning will be to prepare you to assume a specific role within that concentration.
