PARTNERSHIP WITH USD'S MANAGEMENT ACADEMY BENEFITS BANK CUSTOMERS AND BUSINESS COMMUNITY
SAN DIEGO â€“ January 22, 2008 â€“ Torrey Pines Bank has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with USD’s Office of Corporate and Professional Education’s Management Academy for Small Business Owners. The Bank is helping create a bridge between academia and business professionals to provide essential educational opportunities for its customers and members of the greater business community who desire the expertise to build and manage effective and profitable businesses.
The academy is designed to give companies a competitive edge. Specific training programs are developed to help executives lead effectively and middle managers to manage efficiently as well as provide the business skills and tools necessary for sales forces to build a company’s market share and ensure its continued growth.
“As a fast growing local business bank we are excited about our partnership with USD,” said Bank President, Gary Cady. “Our goal is to ensure businesses are properly equipped with the latest business information, tools and resources necessary for running or managing a profitable business.”
In just a half a century USD has grown from a local college with 50 students and a handful of professors to a University with over 7,400 enrolled students and 45,000 alumni. This achievement is the direct result of a single unwavering expectation of academic excellence. Torrey Pines Bank is pleased to be associated with an institution that can boast of being one of the most prestigious colleges in the United States.
