CUNA Management School Attendees Can Earn CCUEs

MADISON, Wis. (4/22/13)--The Credit Union National Association is providing an opportunity to earn CUNA Certified Credit Union Executive (CCUE) designation at a 2013 CUNA Management School, July 14-26, in Madison, Wis. 

"This program is both for those new to the credit union movement and those that have been around but are looking to add to their knowledge of what makes a credit union successful," says Meghann Dawson, manager for instruction design for CUNA's Center for Professional Development. " By earning CCUE designation, a person gains greater overall perspective of the movement and becomes more adept at strategizing for success."

CUNA Management School not only helps develop effective leadership skills, it also, in cooperation with the highly regarded Graduate School of Business at the University of Wisconsin--Madison, offers a blended curriculum of university classes and experiential learning. Many graduates go on to hold upper-level executive positions at credit unions and credit union organizations.

CUNA Management School faculty is comprised of distinguished University of Wisconsin professors, credit union professionals, attorneys and industry experts. The full curriculum takes the form of three two-week terms over consecutive summers.

Credit union-specific topics and activities included in each year's programs include:

  • First year: management, leadership, philosophy, risk management and lending;
  • Second year: financial accounting, strategic management, executive presentation skills, crisis management and compliance program management; and
  • Third year: innovation, business law and ethics, strategic marketing and social media.

Through the use of a sophisticated asset-liability management simulation created by Stanford University, attendees also will have the chance to manage a credit union's finances first-hand without the risks involved in making real-life, complex financial decisions.

In addition to graduating, students who successfully complete three comprehensive exams, two written projects and an oral exam over the course of their three-year curriculum earn the CUNA Certified Credit Union Executive (CCUE) designation.

CUNA Management School was founded in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison with the goal of helping credit unions develop future leaders and a leadership pipeline to their fullest potential. Three other regional schools have since been developed around the country with the same goal in mind.
