Western CUNA Management School helps credit union professionals prepare themselves to keep pace with a rapidly changing business environment. The school is designed for managers and upper-level operational staff who have set credit union management as their career goal and understand the need to keep abreast of developments in our industry.

Western CUNA Management School's educational program includes courses in Strategic Planning, Operations, Lending, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Economics, Business Law, Communications, Leadership and more. Graduates who have developed their skills and knowledge at the school have moved into positions of responsibility and leadership at some of the nation's leading credit unions. Many of them also hold key positions in chapters, leagues, CUNA, and credit union professional societies. Whether the goal is career advancement or simply to stay on top of changes within the industry, no school, conference or seminar in the country can offer credit union professionals a program that surpasses that of Western CUNA Management School.
