Reach for New Heights: Enroll Now in Southwest CUNA Management School
Friday, March 28, 2014 6:40 AM

Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS) is a three-year program designed to develop and enhance leadership skills for credit union professionals. It provides an exceptional forum for networking with other credit union professionals; access to top industry experts, and the opportunity to ignite an inner passion and vision for personal and professional growth.

SCMS has been the educational cornerstone for more than 1,000 credit union professionals. Students have come from throughout the U.S., as well as from Brazil, Mexico, New Zealand and Romania.

SCMS students must complete a rigorous curriculum that includes studies of management/leadership processes; strategic planning analysis and strategy; asset liability management principles and strategies; financial trend analysis; investment instruments; business writing; communication and presentation skills; risk management; legal environment; political advocacy; compliance principles; marketing theory and strategies; quality service and control; credit union history and philosophy, and lending principles and issues.

According to SCMS Director Janine McBee, graduating from the program is challenging, as well as rewarding.

“SCMS students are really challenged to think more broadly, and see their individual credit union through the eyes of the CEO. “They don’t just study text books. As they work through the curriculum, they strategically apply the concepts they’ve learned toward the development of a detailed two-year business plan.”

SCMS offers an intimidate environment on the campus of Texas Christian University that encourages and inspires. Enrollment for the 2014 SCMS Summer Session July 13-23. Prospective students should visit for additional information.

SCMS Scholarships are available through the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation. Please note that April 18 is the deadline to submit your scholarship application for the July 2014 SCMS session. Scholarship guidelines and an application are available on the SCMS website.
