The Missouri School of Lending was founded to provide mid-level bank officers and commercial loan officers a thorough understanding of commercial lending administration. Topics covered at the school include the external environment, typical business, company strategy, effective management, loan investigation, historical financial analysis, sensitivity analysis, loan support and documentation, loan pricing, problem loans, negotiations, credit discipline and more. 


Lending continues to be one of the most crucial functions in banking today. Managing your bank’s loan portfolio is becoming ever more challenging. Increased competition from new players, ever-changing regulations and rising risks are only a few of the factors a lending officer must face. The School of Lending has helped develop hundreds of banking lenders through a week-long comprehensive program of lending education. The Advanced School of Lending is especially designed to build on that education and to meet the needs of lenders whose responsibilities and scope of activities are expanding. The school’s purpose is to meet the growing need for lenders to have the latest knowledge and preparation for complex lending situations. Successful lenders today must acquire a broad knowledge and understanding of the many different lending scenarios and develop the skills required to manage them. The Advanced School of Lending has been designed to reflect contemporary trends affecting the financial services industry. The Advanced School of Lending faculty include experienced bankers and financial services professionals who are committed to sharing their knowledge and skills with program participants. 


The purpose of the School of Bank Management is to prepare mid-level and junior bank officers for their banking career by imparting a thorough understanding of banking and the interrelationship of each function. The two-year course of study encompasses 13 function areas and includes topics such as macroeconomics, deposits and liabilities, trust services, cash management, marketing, lending, investments, asset and liability management, financial planning and control, bank financial analysis, bank operations, data processing, and human resource management. A unique feature of this school is the Bank Exec Program. Students are introduced to a sophisticated computerized bank management simulation that provides the opportunity to make decisions relative to the bank’s profitability and success. 


Compliance is one of the most crucial and consuming issues in the financial industry today. The regulatory agencies are making it clear through their examinations of banks that no institution can afford to be without a comprehensive, well-managed compliance program. Your compliance officer must be able to run the process, including a training program throughout the bank, like a well-oiled machine. The School of Compliance ensures that financial institutions have the latest knowledge and preparation they need to properly handle compliance issues. Constant changes and the highly charged regulatory environment make this information more important than ever for your financial institution. You will have the opportunity to interact with nationally-known compliance experts and with others involved in compliance from institutions similar in size to your own.
