CUNA Certified Credit Union Executive (CCUE) Designation

CUNA Certified Credit Union Executive (CCUE), instituted in 1975, is the hallmark of professional credit union achievement. Designed for credit union staff looking to gain the knowledge and experience needed to advance their career, this program teaches advanced credit union management and operations techniques.

CUNA has aligned the CCUE designation with CUNA Management School and students now earn the designation upon completing all three years of the program, three exams, two projects and an oral presentation.
