Stonier graduates wilt be eligible for up to nine academic credits through Indiana University's Kelley School of Business or the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) Isenberg School of Management online graduate programs.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for Stonier students and graduates to expand their banking education and such prestigious schools like Indiana University and Umass."
